About the Class
This generative workshop is designed to engage writers with the core of their ideas, the true source of their passion—their heart. Gabby Rivera found looking to love as her muse to be transformative: learning to capture that wonder and imagination, and distill it to the truth of what she was writing. How does love—for family, for community, for yourself—inform your work? How does drawing inspiration from love imbue the written word with a different kind of power and meaning? Gabby explores the myriad of ways having love as your muse can radically change your words—and your world.
The Distinguished Visiting Writers Series will also be presenting Inspiring Radical Creativity, a talk with Gabby Rivera on Friday, October 18, 2019 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Burton Barr Central Library in the Pulliam Auditorium (1221 N Central Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85004).
