Online Nonfiction/Poetry Hybrid Workshop with CMarie Fuhrman
February 6, 2023 - March 13, 2023$500
The course: Writing Resilience through Our Relationship with Wildness
We live in a time when most poets and writers feel more and more anxiety, stress, overwhelm, and confusion in their lives. There are too many things on our get-shit-done to-do lists, too much news to follow, so much urgency to publish–and the overwhelming heaviness of a planet in peril. In this class, we will take a journey through reading and writing myths and stories. We will consult Indigenous methodologies and language, theology, witchcraft, and even the tarot as we explore the myriad ways that caring for ourselves is a catalyst for caring for the more than human world and find ways to restore our creative soul while re-storying the planet.
