Writing a Circle of Awareness and Care

This course is grounded in a view of writing as a way of being in the world—aware, reflective, and open. An important component of our work together is an individual and collective commitment to listening with a gentle heart to others, to ourselves, and to our environment. We will engage a structure for writing practice that serves the establishment of a supportive community—and that deepens our relationships with language, words, and one another.
