In this workshop, join poet and writer Sally Ashton who will lead a series of in-class writing exercises that encourage participants to consider “the time before now,” the “new now” of our disrupted lives, and through writing capture your unique unfolding pandemic journey.
This online course will be broken into two sessions:
- Wednesday, July 29, 6-8pm
- Tuesday, August 4, 6-8pm
