WORLD ENOUGH & TIME: On Creativity & Slowing Down “The greatest assassin of life is haste,” said the poet Theodore Roethke. And yet more than a third of us say we “always feel rushed.” This half-day workshop is intended as an antidote to that frantic sense of urgency. In the course of our time together, we will focus on very ordinary, everyday activities — walking, talking, writing, drawing, telling stories — exploring them both as a source of pleasure in themselves, and as a gateway to more sustained creative work.
Where: Peterborough Town Library, 2 Concord Street, Peterborough, NH.
When: Saturday, May 5th, 9:00am-1:00pm.

CIRCLING BACK: Writing & Remembering Those Early Stories In this day-long retreat we will begin to track some of our earliest memories through reading, writing, musing, and convivial conversation. Randi Stein will lead us in movement and drawing, and will also provide a delicious lunch. This workshop may also serve as an introduction to a sustained (and sustaining) writing practice, for those who have a hard time knowing where to start.
