All Levels. When W.H. Auden got stuck, he went out and took a walk. Jane Kenyon spent hours weeding her flower garden. Hemingway cast a fly rod. John Keats took a bath, then dressed in his best suit before sitting down to write. Hunched over laptops, we often believe our brain is the only source of inspiration, but great literature is born from flesh and bone, muscle and sinew. Come learn how simple physical practices and activities can ignite your best stories, essays, plays, and poems. Be prepared to go home with a lot of new work.
