Writing the Body, with Arya Samuelson

Our bodies are made of stories. Heat. Sensation. Illness. Spasms. Tears. Even in numbness or dissociation, the body speaks volumes. Writing the body is one of the most powerful ways to draw in a reader. As soon as someone names a sensation– an ear twitch, a quickened pulse, the ache of longing in a shoulder — we can practically feel it as our own. Through meditations, in-class writing, and class sharing with constructive feedback, we’ll explore how to tap into the body’s language and unearth its stories. No matter your writing background, ambitions, or genre, this class will help you tap into your embodied wisdom and discover new stories waiting to be told.

This workshop will be held in-person with an online option. 

Saturday, November 5, 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. ($75)
