poems with repeated words, sounds
stories that fold to fit in a crack of a stone wall

You’re invited to :: develop your own daily writing ritual
discover authors you relate to
The rhythm of each meeting ::

· pause and sit for a few minutes

· read a small story, essay or poem (leaning toward women authors)

· write and share your story

· a small discussion

· listen (as if listening for a water drop)

(this group emphasizes the practice of writing and doesn’t include feedback or critique)


An aside:

A few weeks ago, I understood that I could not write essays as I had been writing them. I could write short things, simple things; and then be done, and go dig something, walk, clean the sink. I thought this might be familiar— and I thought of you.
