Here’s what one participant has to say about her experience:
“Playshops are summer camp for the soul, full of humor, creativity, joy and poignant moments.  Krayna’s a brilliant facilitator of the heart, who supports artistic freedom and exuberant expression with no pressure or critiquing.  You’ll go home refreshed after being in the company of others who share a love of words and community.”   J.B., Writer & Poet

Creative Writing Playshop:
A Dialogue Between Images & Words

Join me for a special collaboration with At Liberty Arts Collaborative!  The Royal Nebeker exhibition, The Night Window, sets the stage for an evening of spirited play.  Nebeker engages universal themes in his paintings: beauty, revelation, loss, rebirth, dreams and memory.  His work is a springboard par excellance for the stories, dialogues and poems we’ll write.  All levels of experience with poetry/writing welcome.
