Candlelight Write with Tessa Cheek
Sundays March 4-25, 6:00-7:30 pm at 610 Clinton St. in Ridgway
Write your way into evening in this generative, 90-minute workshop, which includes a beeswax candle with price of admission.
We’ll write as a group by the light of our individual candles (with related prompts) and then share excerpts from what we've written on a voluntary basis by passing a single candle. This will be a 4-week session, open to drop ins if space is available. Tuition: $90 for the series, including candle; or $30 to drop-in, including candle.
