The Art of Keeping a Notebook, with Tzivia Gover

Journals and notebooks are the unsung heroes of the writer’s life.  Our journals remind us that writing is more than just a path to publishing: it is a way of life.  Writers from Joan Didion to Virginia Woolf to Alice Walker (and countless others) have kept notebooks. But for many of us, the habit can be difficult to start or sustain. Or we may need guidance for how to keep our ongoing notebook-keeping relevant and vibrant.

In this 6-week workshop, writers will investigate the challenges and deep rewards of writing for ourselves, looking to our notebooks both as a source of inspiration for our writing and as a work-in-progress unto themselves. We will have plenty of structured time in which to generate new writing to share (or not) with the group for supportive feedback. Participants will also receive weekly inspiring tips, prompts and exercises, and will set intentions/goals that will help us transform our journaling habit into a sustainable–and sustaining practice.

Thursdays, 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.; 6-week session begins April 13th ($250)  In – person / hybrid!
