Mindful Writers Workshop

October 20, 27, November 3, 10 from 6:00pm -9:00pm

Dr. Madhu Wangu has prepared a special four-week workshop for those who wish to learn how to express emotions and ideas in words. Each session will begin with a short meditation (no previous experience with meditation is necessary) as Dr. Wangu believes that the creative energy that is built into stillness will carry over into the creative writing process to deepen the writing experience.
