Spring into Summer: Writing through a Change of Season with Randon Billings Noble

Sunday, May 31, 2020 | 4:00pm

Spring is fully upon us. In the Christian calendar we’re about to move from Pentecost into Ordinary Time. In the physical world, the temperatures are rising and the landscape is greening. But many of us are in some version of quarantine. How can we find meaning in this traditional season of hope when our lives have changed so drastically?

Writing from a series of prompts, we’ll use different markers of the season to think about the way we want to shape both our physical and our spiritual lives. What we might be growing out of – and towards? Please bring a pen and a notebook to your screen as well as a sense of curiosity and play.

Please note this is an on-line workshop. Pre-registration is required. A Zoom link will be sent to you in your registration confirmation. Registration for this program will close at 12 pm EDT the day of the program.
