Free Write with Jacqueline Jones LaMon
The Literary Practice of
Fortunes, Braids, and Twists


Join poet, writer and educator Jacqueline Jones LaMon for a ninety-minute workshop exploring the revelatory practice of creating synapse.  In this session, open to writers and poets of all genres and expressions, we will find connection in disconnection, meaning in synchronicity, and understanding in the midst of chaos.  Expect to be surprised at what you learn about yourself and discover new origins of creativity.
