Move to Remember & Write: Movement and Writing Exercises to Generate Creativity

Physical activity, specifically proprioceptive training and exercises, along with meditation, visualization and/or music can help to unlock memories, create new neural associations in the brain and loosen mental and emotional blocks. Generative writing prompts can help you to make new connections and surprise yourself in your writing. Paired, your mind will be more focused and open to discovering new memories or connections, resolving issues in your writing and writing something new. Plus, you will physical feel better too!

Long time fitness instructor Michael Rosengart and writing teacher Chloe Yelena Miller will lead you through a sequence of physical and creative exercises that will help you in your writing practice. By the end of our time together, you'll leave with physical exercises you can perform at home to stimulate the body and the mind as well as two drafts of a creative non-fiction flash essay or poem.

One Saturday: January 7th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET In person at Connecticut Ave classroom.
