Writing Lab: Quarantine Dreams

June 23-July 14

Have you been having weird quarantine dreams? Does your journal read like a chapter in Alice in Wonderland? Share your stories (and develop new ones) with like-minded dreamers in this free-flowing writing class. We’ll begin with writing prompts to spark your imagination, followed by individual or group writing sessions, and then an opportunity to share work with your fellow writers. And no worries--there’s no homework. Just show up and let your mind wander.


Dates: June 23-July 13 (4 meetings: 6/23, 6/30, 7/7, 7/14)


Day/Time: Tuesdays, 6:00-7:15pm 


Tuition: $100
