    Freewriting is a technique for unlocking ideas and images in the mind and getting them out on paper. The workshop leader models a three-step process with timed exercises. This workshop is about creative freedom and is suitable for anyone interested in writing either poetry or prose. Participants will have the opportunity to share ideas and writing from the exercises if they wish to do so. Each will leave not with a finished piece perhaps but with a good start and techniques that can be used over and over again.
