Wild Muse Intuitive Writing

Wild Muse Intuitive Writing
Winter 2022
Memory as Muse
"Writing sometimes feels frivolous
and sometimes sacred, but memory
is one of my strongest muses."
- Marge Piercy, Braided Lives

All writers are welcome—beginning, emerging, and published.
The primary focus is on short form memoir written in prose and poetry. I share examples of excellent writing by established and emerging writers. We write together two or more times each week (10-15 mins. each). You may go with the flow or use the writing time to work on your own project.
All forms of writing are welcome (poetry, prose, hybrid, memoir, essay, flash, micro, vignette, fragment—even fiction).
