During this lively day of writing in Paris, you will delve into the essential relationship between imagination and form, unpack ideas, make new work, and enjoy conversations that will delight and surprise you. We will play with storytelling, practice creating unexpected dialogue and explore how poetry can sharpen your prose. You will touch on presentation and performance and talk about how reading aloud can inform your work on the page. This workshop is for writers at all levels. We look forward having you in our circle.

Your performance was so warm and expressive, and you had our audience right there with you. The Q&A that followed was all we could ask for! What a treasure you are. Thanks for this great give to our community.
