Intuitive Writing: Write Beyond What You Know
A writing workshop suitable for writers of any experience or skill level; drop by for one or attend several! 

9 - 11 AM
Saturday, July 7

Gridworks Co-Working
103 W. Main Street, Durham

Appropriate for all skill and experience levels, this workshop will explore practices which engage intuition as a guide for our writing. Focused on skills applicable to short stories, poems, novels, memoir, and essays, each session will help take your writing from the prosaic to the electric. Enrollment limited to 9.

Workshops will feature meditation, writing exercises, and word games designed to dive deeply into words to find the energetic resonances between them. Starting with short phrases that shimmer and vibrate, we’ll go on to build sentences, stanzas, paragraphs, narratives, and larger works which hum and sparkle.

While each class shares similar goals, each session will be substantially different from the others. The classes are designed so that participants will benefit from taking one class or from taking several.

Scholarships are available. Contact me at rumblek@gmail.com for more information.

About me: I am a writer of both poetry and fiction and published my first poetry collection, Key Bridge, in 2007 with Carolina Wren Press. I have published dozens of poems in journals including Jubilat, Typo, The Hat, Carolina Quarterly, Talisman, Free Verse, and in Washington Post Bookworld. In 2012, I began The Accountant, my first novel, and completed it in early 2017. In 2014, I received an Emerging Artist Award from the Durham Arts Council in support of the book. In 2015, I attended the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference and in 2016 the Sewanee Writers’ Conference, both in fiction. Recently, I have been an artist-in-residence at Virginia Center for Creative Arts in Virginia, Playa Artist Fellowship Program in Oregon, and Brush Creek Arts Foundation in Wyoming. This past August, The Accountant was named a finalist for the Elixir Press fiction prize.
