“Simple & Shining: Maintaining Dialogue with Ourselves and One Another through Regular Writing”: Join keynote speaker Naomi Shihab Nye for a two hour writing workshop open to everyone, whether you have years of writing experience or only the mildest, gentle interest in the topic. “We are all beginners” Naomi says. “We are all word-users, walking the long path of babble, hungry for meaning. Please bring writing utensils and notebook. Expect an exchange ofpoems and thoughts relating to poems, accessible suggestions, hopeful considerations, a few anecdotes, and brief quiet time to write, as well as voluntary sharing from members of the group. No critiquing. You are welcome to bring a poem written by someone else or by yourself which has helped you on the way. We will feel much closer to many things we care about, and one another, at the end of this session than we did at beginning- that is my pledge.”
