                     wftb is designed to nourish and sustain your creative juices   


          in 5 friday morning classes this july we'll spend the 2½ hrs in the following ways—

                       with the breaths and soundings of continuum movement we dive for 20 minutes into our body's fluid system, invoking "spirallic" movement in our cellular tissue

                        as we ride the internal wave, our buoyant bodies                          give rise to expression

                        stimulated by prompts from poetry and prose, we write for 5 minutes and share our writing in the group 

                        each week "homeplay" provides a prompt for a longer piece of     writing (poetry or prose) which we share in breakout groups and receive creative feedback


                                      if this sounds the right environment

                                                 for your writing to flourish
