I’d love to have you join the Gold Country Writers in downtown Auburn’s Placer Arts Gallery for my Wednesday, May 21, 10-noon, event: Creative Writing–Then and Now.

First, we’ll take a quick look at the history of writing, including cuneiform, the Mesopotamian way–starting in 3200 B.C.E.–of writing by pressing wedges into wet clay producing what looks like this:

You can go to the Penn Museum page “Write Like a Babylonian” website and type in your own name to see how it looks like in cuneiform, as well!

We will play with several approaches to creative writing, including Natalie Goldberg’s Freeing the Writer Within, Gabriel Rico’s Clustering, Julia Cameron’s Morning Pages, Dina Metzger’s shadow characters, and June Gillam’s FictionIn4Colors.
