Studio Hour: Oracular Writing
with Annie Guthrie
Wednesdays, April 7 through May 26
12:00 to 1:00 p.m.
Using the principle of consultation, participants will have the chance to distract the analytical mind and develop freedom in their writing practice. Since writing is so often fed by our direct experiences in the world, we can see creativity as a partnership with what we see, feel and absorb as skilled observers and expert feelers. In this spirit, we will strive to refresh our sensitivity to our experiences, and writing exercises will encourage new identities as writers – we will become pamphleteers, flâneure, literary djs, hack philosphers, codebreakers, sound collagists… whatever it takes to stir and restore the writer to his/her craft.
