Upcoming Seminars & Workshops
Join award-winning poet Jane Medved in a series of 6 workshops, in which we will examine various techniques to outwit our rational brain and “write ahead of our conscious minds."
We will study the techniques of other writers and put into practice the art of startling ourselves. Class time will be spent on editing and refining our own poems, as well as generating new material. This workshop is for writers with experience.
The Torah is said to have been written as black fire on white fire. We will be dealing with the realm of the white fire, the spaces between the words.
Since no text can fully delineate every aspect of the story, readers become part of the creative process, constantly filling in the gaps with their own contexts — things seen, felt, experienced, and read. Bibliotherapy deals with the ways in which we fill in these gaps.
