What you'll do
Guided Writing Tours™ are themed, writing excursions in evocative locations. All levels and genres of writing are welcome. On this Guided Writing Tour™, we’ll meet at the Hammer Museum – a local mecca of cutting-edge art in the heart of Westwood. After checking in, we’ll find a table in the airy courtyard and ease into the experience with a relaxed conversation about where we’re from, what we’re writing and what we’d like to be writing. I’ll custom-curate our exploration of current exhibits - it’s not your usual museum visit! I’ve discovered that exposure to art in this way evokes emotions and stirs memories, rich resources to mine for your writing. Together, we’ll free-write to two or more experiential prompts, inspired by what we’ve seen, heard and felt. I’ll help you silence your inner critic and allow your writing to flow. You might be surprised when new ideas and perspectives show up in unexpected ways. Along with plenty of time to write and reflect, you may share your experience or what you’ve written with the group. Whatever your expertise or background, I’ll offer specific ways to keep your writing process flourishing after you leave, and develop what you’ve written further. Writers of all levels come away with inspiration, ideas, and (often profound) inner shifts. Previous guests have gone on to publish, produce and perform writing they started on the tour!
