CAP Program Director Note: This was the most popular workshop at our Spring Writes Literary Festival this past May, with over 50 people attending. The feedback was fantastic and people reported getting many concrete takeaways, so that's why we decided to offer it again!

Writers spend a lot of time in the mind. Yet, vibrant writing is often felt in the body of the reader. Imagine what you could create from a deeper, more embodied experience of your real or imagined worlds? Through a series of mindfulness exercises and writing prompts intended to stimulate the senses and shift perspective, this workshop will explore what it means to write from the body. Participants will come away with rich material generated from a place of deep embodiment as well as techniques to enter mind/body connection before sitting down to write. This workshop is for writers of all levels: avocational to professional! 
Brenna holds an M.F.A. in creative nonfiction writing and has published work in journals including Stone Canoe, Creative Nonfiction, and Ars Medica. She is a health and creativity coach as well as a yoga and mindfulness teacher.
