Writing the Flood
Open the gates and let your writing voice flow
Third Saturday of every month (except where otherwise noted, like this month!)
The first Flood Write of 2019 meets January 12, 1-4:30pm
Come write with us!
Step into that resolution you made to return to your words!
Writing The Flood is a writing group for anyone looking to prime the writing pump: using the Amherst Writers and Artists method, we will write together in response to exercises designed to get those pens moving, and get onto the page the stories, poems, essays, images and voices that have been stuck inside for too long. This is a time to work on a larger project, get started on new work, play on the page, or write yourself through a block and back into your writing voice.
Unless otherwise noted, this workshop meets on the third Saturday of the month. $75 (sliding scale available). Spaces limited to 10 writers.
No previous writing experience necessary! Workshops held in downtown Oakland in an accessible space, close to BART and AC Transit lines. Pre-registration is required — please write to Jen with questions or to register.
Can’t make it this month? Mark your calendars: The February Writing the Flood will meet on 2/16.
About your facilitator: Jen Cross is a widely-published freelance writer. She holds an MFA from San Francisco State University, has led writing workshops since 2002, and writes with folks about trauma, sexuality, and so much more.
