Marjorie Kanter Holds "Journal Keeping Workshop"

in

Join writer Marjorie Kanter to explore journal keeping -- explore or build a habit, collect your experiences and exercise your creativity and writing. This talk-workshop is an introduction to process-oriented journal keeping. Using words and images, she will focus on observing, gathering, playing with, and recording experiences. Are you new to Madrid? Or have you been around for some time? We will visit memory lane and also what's going on right here and now. Do you want to be sure to record what you see and feel -- keep a record for yourself, or to share with your family and friends? We will consider opening up the mind and getting your flow going. Meant for both those who already keep a journal and those new to the experience. Marjorie will share her experiences with journal keeping as the first step in her becoming a writer. Why keep a journal? How do you start? What do you do with it? How do you keep it going? What do you put in it? We´ll be starting off with coffee at 11 a.m. and then going downstairs to hear Marjorie. For more information on Marjorie's writing career, click onto this event under the word "Calendar" on the blue bar at the top of this page.
