Join late, leave early, come to all sessions, come to a few sessions–there’s no wrong way to participate in the two-week EMERGE livewriting sessions. It is free, and everyone is welcome to join.

What is Livewriting?

A mostly silent, real-time writing experience celebrating the creative process. It seems counterintuitive to come together, in silence, to write, but this gentle, collective accountability WORKS because we all experience the value of shared vulnerability. When that happens, writers start worrying less about harsh goals and, instead, focus on the validation they experience by being uplifted in their community and associating positive energy with the habit of writing. Resources and light-advising provided at the end of each session.

Wednesday, April 19 through Thursday, May 4, 2023, weekdays from 12:00-1:15 pm ET
