Online Event: The Power of Space (Making) and Place: Writing your Inner Desert
The Power of Space (Making) and Place: Finding and Writing your Inner Desert during the Pandemic
About this event
The ongoing pandemic has made us all thirst for connection with our magical Mojave Desert places more than ever. Whether you’ve been able to get to Joshua Tree National Park or not during this challenging time, you can join Ruth Nolan’s “Writing Your Inner Desert” online workshop to bring you there to experience the desert through creative writing! Through animated writing prompts provided by the instructor, we’ll tune in to the Mojave’s vibrant eco-tones as our touchstone for finding and writing a special kind of desert catharsis through the power of place and word. There will be time for participants to share what they write during the workshop. Writers of all levels are welcome, ages 16+.
This will be a one-time, two-hour virtual writing workshop meeting on Thursday, October 7th, 2021 from 6-8 PM, Pacific Standard Time.
This workshop is a continuation of the popular Writing Your Inner Desert workshop series curated by Ruth Nolan and sponsored by the Desert Institute at Joshua Tree National Park.
You will receive a Zoom meeting link upon registration.
