An Appointment with Emily and Your Chair: Free Writing Session

We make ourselves sit down, and we don’t get up until we’ve gotten a few sentences down at the very least. But sometimes it feels impossible to even get to the chair.

January Collage Challenge

For January’s Collage Challenge, we’re building off of last month’s theme. For December, the Collage Challenge was to create a collage based on Tarot imagery. To determine the theme of January’s Collage Challenge, we pulled a card, which as it happened is 2021’s Card of the Year— the Hierophant! So for January’s Collage Challenge, the challenge is to create a collage based on the Hierophant archetype. Tag the IPRC or join us Thursday, Jan. 14th for a virtual Show & Tell of your collage creations. Register here, and zoom link will be sent on the day of the event.
