PRAISE FOR ANDREA’S REVISION WORKSHOPS:

 

Your class is terrific -- not just your knowledge and rich understanding of how good writing works, but how you draw people along growing their own skills, and your deep presence and welcoming kindness. 

— Ann Gronvold

 

Your edits are remarkable.  The flow and crispness of the sentences are much improved (even with the little changes). You are magical.  — Bob Healey

 

Great class! I learn something valuable at every meeting. (From all the discussions, not just mine.) I really love the way you put out your thoughts, but also bounce off and expand on our thoughts. You have created more than a class. You have created a community. — Travis Darcy

Class: Mary Reynolds Thompson & Kate Thompson- Literature, Landscape & Imagination: How We Connect to Self and Place

12/17/2014 4:30 pm
Wed., Dec. 17 • 2:00-4:30 pm • $65
 
 
 
 
A strong landscape has an emotional effect; it creates a type of memory in which the landscape plays a vital role and becomes fused with the self. We will explore how landscapes––real, literary, and imagined––can create a topology of memory that infuses our writing and lives with deeper awareness and creativity. 
 
Mary Reynolds Thompson is a facilitator of poetry and journal therapy and author of Embrace Your Inner Wild: 52 Reflections for an Eco-Centric World and Reclaiming the Wild Soul: How Earth’s Landscapes Restore Us to Wholeness.
Kate Thompson is an existential counselor, journal therapist and writer. Her publications include Therapeutic Journal Writing: An Introduction for Professionals.
