Togetherness: too much of it or too little of it. Either way, humans must have it to thrive. In this generative workshop we’ll explore things we do together as the subject for our writing fun. Further, we’ll work together to do the writing! Think Renga Chain. Think white-board chorus. As a group, we’ll brainstorm how humans get together and work together: picnic, reunion, ball game, kiss. This list is infinite! We’ll generate a group poem around one of the topics either as a Renga or using the zoom white board. Then writers will take ideas to their own page to write individual works. Finally, we’ll share product and give soft feedback. Whether you write poetry or prose, a lot or a little, every day or not at all, this workshop is for you. Because, after all, we’ll be in it together!
