Workshop Description

If your life feels like one commitment piled on top of another, with no time for writing, join Mimi Herman to ease your way into inspiration. You’ll slowly relax, breathe deeply as we rarely get the opportunity to do, and take a journey into the deepest part of yourself. When you emerge from your poetry nap, you’ll be ready to spill ideas and images onto the page, and craft them into poetry. This workshop is designed for writers of all levels and all genres.
