Boxing Day Cozy Morning Writing Retreat

Sunday, December 26, 2021

9:00 p.m. to Noon + Eastern Time

Invite your muse + Draft poems + Build community

Please join us for the first anniversary of our Cozy Writes on Zoom, where we’ll lean into the comforts the season can bring, and celebrate making it through the darkest parts of the year together! We’ll play with 2-3 pre-writes/experiments, and write together to brand new prompts. Come enjoy all the warm fuzzies of being with poetry family can bring!

You are welcome to come and go, to dip in for a single session or stay the whole time, to participate in all/none of the break out sessions. I’ll be letting people in from the waiting room during these times, while you chat in the smaller groups connecting with other poets, grab a coffee, let the dog out, etc.!

Some sessions will use music/sound and some will be silent. *Please turn off your sound if you prefer! I’ll give a visual 5 minute warning before we return.

The prompts will remain on the screen as we write, and you’ll get a pdf which includes all prompts (and a few extras) a few days after our retreat. *When it comes to prompts – take what you like and leave the rest! You are ALWAYS free to follow your muse!
