(Re)Kindling: A Three Part Creative Series

(Re)Kindling is a three part series presented by Amanda McCormick and Kristen Zory King, offering a creative atlas designed to help writers reconnect to their practice. Through three distinct, nurturing, and highly curated offerings including a creative toolkit released in December, a four week workshop in March, and a three-day virtual retreat hosted in October, (Re)Kindling will help creative thinkers generate new writing, interrogate and reconnect to their creative impulses, and rekindle to joy of the artistic process. Participants can choose to participate in each offering piecemeal or conjointly, choosing the path that best suits their creative needs.
