In this workshop we learn tools to connect to our creative self, using prompts and a journal to write poetry, thoughts and responses. We will provide journals and pens and you will receive prompts and exercises to awaken the creative self, with a focus on gratitude. There is a lot to celebrate for being able to be in community again. Your journal is a live document, it is a reflection of your observations and point of view and will assist you in honoring your creative practice.
Registration is required in advance! All are welcome. Minors under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult. Registration fee can be waived upon request by emailing the Roger Williams Park Conservancy.
