Upcoming workshops

    • Tuesday, April 25, 2017
    • 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
    • Silk Purse Arts Centre
    This workshop is open to everyone and great for all age groups and levels of writers. Take the challenge. Write to a prompt for 10-15 minutes and see what you get. This kind of free flow writing to prompts by-passes the inner critic, removes blocks and inhibitions. With everyone in the same boat, with the same time constraints, it quickly builds trust in groups. Getting stuff out, getting it down on paper and sharing with others - these things are life enhancing, life affirming. A Pandora's Collective event.
    Hosted by poet Fran Bourassa
    Admission $5
