Moving Bodies as Writing Bodies: a workshop
Me and my close friend and collaborator Clay A.D. developed a workshop that combines somatic body work with an introduction to science fiction writing. It is a mix of guided meditations and visualisations as well as writing exercises, some collective and some individual. The workshop is our shapeshifting baby and changes length as well as focus with each iteration, most of the time it is accompanied by a lovely hand made reader that we composed together.
During the last two years, we facilitated it on several occassions and found out that it can be held on sight and online. We’re always happy to do it again in any of these forms.
