Published writer, certified expressive arts educator, and Stony Creek resident Amy J. Barry will lead an adult workshop series to encourage creative self-expression through reading and writing poetry and short prose followed by group discussion. She will use a variety of writing exercises, such as visual and word prompts to help participants tap into the intuitive, imagistic right side of the brain, and transform negative energy into positive energy.
This workshop is an opportunity to take time out to get playful and reflect on one’s own personal journey and life transitions in a supportive environment. Previous writing experience is not required.
