Summer Writing Workshops for Children and Adults
May 31, 2011 07:49PM
Kathy Kane, a certified Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coach® and an Amherst Writers and Artists affiliate, will hold writing workshops this summer for both children and adults, beginning in July. Held at the Room Above, 2 East Main St., in Brookside, the daytime session for middle-school-aged children starts on Tuesday, July 12, from 10 a.m. to noon, and an evening session for adults starts on Wednesday, July 13, from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Each class runs for four weeks. Kane invites writers of all experience levels to “Come play on the page. Call upon your quirky, silly side to play with words, sounds, rhythms and maybe some rhymes.” As Kane notes, “Our writing muscle gets stronger through practice, and practice comes from playful experimenting and childlike wonder.” Both verbal and visual prompts will be used, and writers will read their works aloud while discovering how play allows the writer the chance to plumb the depths of his or her writing voice. Space is limited to between 8 and 10 writers.
