- Zoom: The Rough Writing Road: Keeping a Journal
Sun I Nov 2020 09.30 – 12.40ish R340 pp (14 max)
Why the rough road? It’s writing that has not been crafted or edited.
Spontaneous. Rough also as in rough days. It’s the place of beginning.
Many writers have kept journals. The journal is a
vehicle for my sense of selfhood. It represents me
as emotionally and spiritually independent.
Therefore (alas) it does not simply record my
actual, daily life but rather—in many cases—offers
an alternative to it. (Susan Sontag)
Journals inform and support all genres. As a think
book a plan book an open-hearted one. Instants
of inspiration. As William Blake says, kissing the
moment as it flies. This wordshop will lead you into
keeping that vital journal.
