Words Wide Open & More

28 Sep

One thing we can always count on in life is change and new endeavors can make that exciting.  I have new endeavors to share on a personal level and exciting news about one of our favorite contributing poets.

Here in Chicago, we’ve started creativity/art therapy workshops at Second Sense blind service organization.  Our first is Masks & Mayhem where folks are making paper mache masks and will then do some expressive improv from behind the mask.  Coming up in November is our creative writing workshop titled Words Wide Open, facilitated by our very own Jeff Flodin.  The mask makers are having a great time and opening up as the process moves forward.  I can’t wait to see what our new writers produce.

Another wonderful endeavor to share is that one of our contributing poets, Mani G. Iyer has just completed his first writing fellowship at Vermont Studios and besides discovering new changes in himself, his poetic juices are flourishing.  We can’t wait to see what’s new!  For a taste of Mani’s sensitive writing style, go to The Day I Met Angel Gabriel and scroll our archives for more.
