1 – 5 pm
Journal writing is not about writing better; it’s about writing freely. The journal is a place of centering, of stepping into a quiet world to focus on what’s within and what’s around. Writing in a journal is not only a form of contemplation and examination of yourself and the world, but also a way to keep a record. Short lectures on various kinds of journals will give way to in-class writing and visual journaling.
