Howe Writing Salon

Each spring and fall the Howe offers a series of monthly writing workshops.  In March, April, and May 2022, James Crews will be offering instruction in mindful journaling.  This program will be held by Zoom from 4:00-5:30 on Sundays March 20, April 10, and May 22.

"In this workshop, we’ll explore connections between the practice of meditation/mindfulness and the act of journal writing from the heart. Using poems as prompts for reflection, we’ll do short writing exercises that utilize image and close attention. Beginners and all levels are welcome; you just need a pen, paper and an open mind. This is an ideal workshop for those looking to restart or sustain a creative journaling practice, and generate some new work."

To reserve a place in a workshop or for more information, email Jared Jenisch at  Registration is limited to 12.
