Intuitive Storytelling

Half-Day Workshop at the Writing Barn

Often, when writers find themselves blocked, they respond by trying to impose structures on their stories from above, utilizing prescriptive plots or pieces of writing advice that don’t feel natural to their work. In this class, writers explore the opposite approach: writing from the bottom up by accessing intuition.

Through meditative and creative writing prompts, writers discover how to access their subconscious and work with the ideas and emotions lurking below the surface. After accessing these deeper levels of thought and feeling, writers gain new insight into their work and write with more immediacy, power, and fluency.

Whether you’re working on fiction, memoir, or poetry, this class will help you develop new strategies for becoming creatively inspired.
