9-10:15 AM—Writer’s Craft Session
Constance Adler: WRITING FROM THE DARKNESS BEHIND YOUR EYES
Ray Bradbury said that he kept a note posted above his typewriter to remind him: “Don’t think!” Of course, telling writers not to think is like telling fish not to swim. Still, it’s worth considering Bradbury’s assertion that thinking is the enemy of creativity. In this master class, participants will practice spontaneous writing exercises to discover what they don’t think. Through guided meditation and directed periods of breathing and stillness, writers locate narratives that dwell below the water line of consciousness. Bring a notebook and pen.
