Daily Writing in the Spirit of William Stafford:
Writing Witness for a Better Nation (online)

Northwest Writing Institute
Monday, January 22-February 26, 2018
All Day – Online

In the news, we are subject to daily assaults on our sense of decency, inclusion, and honesty—so why not talk back to that darkness by writing some form of local witness daily?

Based on the 50-year daily writing practice and peace testimony of poet William Stafford, this online course will offer resources from the William Stafford Archives, and writing prompts for daily writing practice.

Writers in the class will work with fellow writers in posting and offering supportive response to one piece of writing each week. For writers who want to establish a daily practice, and teachers hungry for writing prompts in poetry and prose.

The class will begin with an online orientation session January 22 to confirm everyone can engage the online environment.

Northwest Writing Institute (NWI) classes are offered to teachers, counselors, parents, veterans, and all community members interested in the power of stories to help us understand and practice human connections for the good of all.
