Parenthood—in all its diverse and complicated forms—is ripe for writing that is funny, heartbreaking, surprising, and brutally honest. And yet, the day-to-day experience of being a parent can sometimes feel like a roadblock in the writer’s journey, with the seemingly mundane tasks draining away all creative juices. 

In this generative workshop, we will embark on prompts and exercises that use parenting as a spark to ignite our writing. How can parenthood fuel new ideas and deepen your creative projects? How can you capture the experience of parenting with a fresh voice that is uniquely your own? How can you nurture (or parent) yourself as a writer? 

Writers of all genres are welcome. While the workshop is designed for those who are parenting in some way, it is open to any writer interested in exploring parenthood as a source or subject of the writing life.
