This workshop embraces aspects of the winter season to fuel our creative writing. Join us as we take a closer look at how animals survive and thrive in cold temperatures, the necessity of the freeze-thaw cycle to make the sap run, and how some seeds rely on being frozen in order to germinate. We'll use these examples as entry points to generate new work. Expect to create fresh drafts each week and to view winter with a new appreciation.
