2019 Session Description

Writing Freely

For adults (teens welcome) • 45 minutes
Category: Creating
7:00am daily •
Time and location subject to change (what isn't?)

Maybe you like to write, or you want to write more. Perhaps you feel the need to reflect on all the things that you’re experiencing at Mindcamp, to collect them and make sense of them. Or you just want to explore your creative potential using words and language.

These are all good reasons to join us mornings for random free-writing. We’ll use prompts and images and writing exercises to unleash the words in you. No need to attend every time, just drop in whenever you feel the urge to write.

The Skinny: 3 things you will do in this session

  • Access your natural fluidity in order to write spontaneously
  • Generate a first draft (of whatever you want to write) without effort or angst
  • Defer judgment on yourself and fully enjoy the process of writing
