About this Event

Need ideas to help you get started writing? Take a dip into our classes before you dive in! Presented in partnership with Phoenix College and Changing Hands Bookstore, Write Here, Write Now is a monthly pop-up workshop every 4th Monday from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. 

This month: Counting the Breaths  with Aria Curtis!

Meditation and mindfulness in their varied forms offer a way to become aware of our thoughts, feelings, and body sensations. In this workshop, we’ll look at the ways that we can use them as tools in our writing practice to foster inspiration, flow, and a safe place within us for any challenging emotions that might arise, in addition to how exploring writing itself as meditation. With a discussion on mindfulness, a guided meditation, and writing exercise, this workshop is open to all.
