Do you like the idea of writing in the middle of a park?
Did you make a commitment to writing more often this year, yet haven’t made the time to do it?
Would you like to write among a community of other writers and have facilitation with a handful of simple prompts to get you started?
Then write where you are.
Grand Park’s Teaching Writer-in-Residence traci kato-kiriyama curates a variety of themes throughout the season, and facilitate short form writing exercises throughout the hour. Themes this year will include love, healing, power, quirks, city and maps, home, dreams, vision, food and nourishment; and many more.
Meetups will have special guests, including leaders in journalism and script-writing to support cultivating new writings or to nurture existing works.
LOCATION: Meet at the Fountain overlook, right off Grand Ave. below the white tents. Writing materials (pens and notepads) will be provided.
