Workshop description: This is a writing workshop meant to help writers, of any genre or skill, write to connect with their most spiritual selves. Using free-write and meditative methods, this workshop will challenge you to speak to, sit with, and engage with your inner child. We ask that you bring an offering to the workshop. This can be a picture or object from your childhood that can be used either as a grounding object or as a source of inspiration. As we write to our past and future selves I want us to reflect on this question: What would you bring to the shrine of your childhood?
