Free Write with Suzi Banks Baum
When Traditions Lay a Trap: Write Your Way Into A New Year
How many ways does the holiday season sideline your focus to write? In all the ways commercial culture wants us to be holly and jolly, our interior lives follow the seasonal cycle toward a fertile and fallow quiet. Join Suzi Banks Baum for a guided writing session using a centering meditation and prompts to get your pen moving. Please bring a libation and your journal and pen.
Suzi Banks Baum dwells at the crossroad of literary and visual arts. A writer, mixed media and book artist, Suzi expresses the holy ordinary. Her devotion to daily creative practice is the super-food for her signature teachings: Backyard Art Camp, the Powder Keg Writing Workshops, and Advent Dark Journal. Suzi travels to Gyumri, Armenia to teach the book arts to women artists. She also administers the Writers Studio of the Pentaculum residency at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. She will teach at the Genesis Retreat Center in the winter of 2022 and at Snow Farm Craft School in May 2022. Her first book, An Anthology of Babes gives voice to 36 artist mothers. Her writing appears in the inaugural edition of Kerning literary magazine (2021) and in The Collection: Flash Fiction for Flash Memory by Anchala Studios and the Walloon Writers Review. A selection from her memoir-in-progress won third prize in the Hypertext Literary Magazine Doro Böhme Memorial Contest in the fall of 2021.
