Writing In The Dark
When it is dark, by what stars do we navigate?
Looking toward the holiday season – the time when it seems “everyone” is expected to be jolly – can be daunting for some, as can reading a newspaper, attending family or office functions, or simply having to turn on a light earlier each evening. Amazingly, the sweet music of many pens writing helps create light.
We will write our own stories of navigating this cold, dark season, and touch on some ancient tales that have enlivened people throughout the ages. As we move toward the longest night of the year, this one day workshop offers an opportunity to slow down and contemplate how our pens can help steer us through.
