Memories, Dreams, Feelings: Freewriting - workshop

Wednesdays starting July 21

Memories, Dreams, Feelings: A Zoom Freewriting Workshop with Signe Hammer

How do we unlock our memories, dreams and feelings? Freewriting can be a powerful tool for liberating the treasures of the mind. Write in the moment, with evocative prompts to inspire you. Let your writing flow naturally, with no rules about how to shape it. Whatever you write is right!

Whether you're interested in memoir or just want to try personal writing, this Zoom workshop provides a safe space in which to explore new writing territory. In addition to prompts, short readings—including writers' reflections on opening up their own memories and feelings—will help excite, stimulate and motivate.

Each two-hour workshop session includes two freewriting periods. After each one, participants will have the opportunity to read their writing aloud—and to respond positively to what, in others' writing, pleases the ear or reverberates in the mind and heart. (Sharing is encouraged but never required.)

I respond to readings with positive reinforcement and encouragement. Workshop participation includes a 20-minute, one-on-one mentoring session with me via audio, Skype, FaceTime, WhatsApp or Zoom, on the writing subject or question of your choice.

Emerge from each workshop session with the beginnings or more of two solid explorations of new territory—in writing, in memory, in dreams or feelings!
