The goal of this “salon” is to free up participant’s creativity (while rediscovering the love of writing), and help those who choose to write, to write better. Through a series of creative writing exercises, we’ll invite inspiration in and break through barriers of the well ordered mind that can result in writers block and fear of expression (for all writers whether you are a songwriter, poet, novelist – this gathering welcomes all.)
Waiting for the muse to strike can be a mistake. Rather, as cleverly stated by songwriter Jeff Tweedy in his new book How to Write OneSong, “Most of the time, inspiration has to be invited.” We will find renewed joy for language, inspiration, to explore becoming better writers together at the Old Stone House.
This writing salon will be taught by Annie Keating, veteran songwriter who just released her 10th album, and teaches songwriting, guitar and tours internationally. www.anniekeating.com
