A great, free, human adventure

William Stafford called writing “a great, free, human adventure.” Does it feel that way to you? What’s between the possibility of such an adventure, and your present experience of the creative process or your work itself?

I’m teaching a number of creative writing courses this summer, back home in northern Michigan. I’m interested in freeing the space and finding the mindset that allows for what Stafford reminds us is ours, if we open to it. ¬†Consider joining me for “Materialize the Inner Life” or “Writing Wildness”. Both of these sessions will offer intimate, intensive explorations of the poet and writer’s engagement with inner experience, often as it relates to the world around us. I’d also recommend “Hush, Hum” which is one of my own favorite workshops to teach because it’s both a chance to write, and a chance to slow down, quiet the mind, and discover a meditative and delicate space that can yield poems as well as a much sought after sense of calm.
