Winter Wisdom: A Reflective Writing Workshop
Discover the power of reflective writing in this online interactive workshop, inspired by Monet’s winter masterpiece, The Magpie and two exquisite winter poems by Mary Oliver. Explore the lessons that this season offers us when we slow down, look closely and reflect. Look outwardly at paintings and poetry to look inwardly through writing. Designed for groups of 2 – 24, this 75-minute session is ideal for a writing group, a book club or friends and family to gather in a creative space on a cold winter night. No writing experience necessary, just curiosity!
Claude Monet. The Magpie. 1868-1869. Musee d’Orsay, Paris.
