I'm very excited to announce that I will be leading poetry writing workshops at The Spa Room in Washington, D.C. (Tenleytown.) During each drop-in session, I will offer writing prompts connected to your physical experience of the world.
I look forward to writing with you during the first one: Tuesday, May 10th from 7:30 - 9:30 pm. You can register through The Spa Room.
Classes are limited to eight students. Register for each evening workshop separately. More details below, including future dates. Don't hesitate to email me with questions: chloemiller(at)gmail(dot)com
Writing the Body: Poetry Writing Prompt Workshop
In this monthly workshop, we will write in response to prompts. The prompts will begin with our bodies (muscles, five senses, physical memories) and may bring us anywhere. As we can slowly stretch our body to allow an opening, we will focus on our physical experiences and related memories in order to understand them better. Writing, which includes naming our experiences, is part of how we understand and navigate our world.
Our time together will be spent generating writing in response to prompts. Writers will be invited to read their in-class writing, if they choose to. The focus will be on the creative process (rather than editing and revising the work.)
Writers of all levels welcome.
Please come with a writing surface (clipboard or book) and paper or charged laptop.
You are welcome to register for one or more classes. Each one will be unique and stand on its own.

Do spend some time looking around The Spa Room's website. I first received a massage at The Spa Room while I was pregnant. This wellness studio has a holistic approach that I quite love and trust.
