Spring forward into new writing depths! Through carefully selected prompts and timed writing laps, we’ll pave the way for new ideas to surface. This writing marathon is designed to force the “censor” to the sidelines, even off the page. At the core of this method is the truth that so many great writers have asserted: We have within us the power to bring our sleeping images to the light! You’ll be writing in a safe, relaxed environment, and encouraged, though not pressured, to read some of what you produce. You’ll leave the Marathon with fresh material, new connections, and some revelations for your writing practice.
