Participants will be led through a time-limit free-write experience that will stretch their creative muscle, invoke new sources of inspiration and help overcome writer’s block. This workshop is a good introduction to freewriting for novices. In celebration of Arbor Day, participants will take home a sapling to plant and remind them to keep growing creatively. Led by Babs McGrory, creator of Pi-ku Poetry (Bite Sized Poems to Help Fight Hunger). All workshop materials will be provided. This event takes place outdoors with social distancing. 

Participants must bring their own chair and wear a mask.
