Halloween, Haunted Writing Workshop
Don't be spooked by poetry! Create your own haunted writing at this event.
People recall and view Halloween fondly as a sugar binge. Others associate the holiday with ESP, psychic occurrences, or All Souls Day. The holiday is a natural source of spirited writing. Join author Dr. David B. Axelrod for this holiday-themed writing workshop. Get a writing lesson and then read your spontaneous writing to the group, or perhaps revise it for humor, something heart-rending or truly horrifying.
Please bring a notebook and something to write with/write on (there are no tables). Bench seating will be provided, but you are welcome to bring a folding chair if you’d like. This workshop will take place in OMAM’s Garden Gazebo. Please note the nearest public restroom is located at The Casements (one block away).
