Dharma Arts Writing Workshop


A Creative Writing Workshop

“First Thought”

w/ Bill Gaston

Sunday May 18th 2 - 5 p.m.

The workshop will involve Bill talking semi-formally, general discussion, writing exercises, and also guided meditation/contemplation. The focus of the session will be on the creative process, in particular how words are typically used, and how they could be used in a fresher way, giving rise to writing that can wake up both the writer and the reader. The workshop will be presented with both those who are repeating the workshop, and newcomers in mind.
