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.

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.
