Beginning Again: Putting Fun Back Into Writing.
Nevada County Poet Laureate, Kirsten Casey, wants you to enjoy the process of writing, even if you feel undisciplined and blocked. Her approach to writing will entertain you and inspire you. Remember why you started to write and come to renew that sense of inspiration.
I will boost your creativity, through a glimpse into the ways I find inspiration, and I will provide prompts to renew your curiosity and love for writing.
You will learn where to look for inspiration when you don’t feel inspired.
- the internet is your friend, the internet is your enemy.
- accountability in writing, what does that mean to you?
- fun prompts that are useful in any genre of writing.
- encouragement without judgment, learning to accept your own approach.
Kirsten Casey is the current Nevada County poet laureate, and an active California Poet in the Schools. As laureate, she is writing poems celebrating local historical places, people, and events. She is also holding community workshops to promote poetry and to make the process of its creation more accessible. Her second book of poetry (with the working title Instantaneous Obsolescence) explores historical and literary characters struggling with social media. Kirsten Casey.
