The Dandelions Are Prophesizing: A Writing Workshop Through Plant & Mycelial Encounters w/ Janice Lee

The Dandelions Are Prophesizing: A Writing Workshop Through Plant & Mycelial Encounters A 4-Week Online Workshop starting July 19, 2021 “The world is not a problem to be solved; it is a living being to which we belong. It is part of our own self and we are a part of its suffering wholeness. Until we go to the root of our image of separateness, there can be no healing. And the deepest part of our separateness from creation lies in our forgetfulness of its sacred nature, which is also our own sacred nature.” – Thich Nhat Hanh “If we are interested in livability, impermanence, and emergence, we should be watching the action of landscape assemblages. Assemblages coalesce, change, and dissolve: this is the story.”…

Time Fuck: A face2face Collaboration w/ Lidia Yuknavitch

Linear time not only doesn’t always make sense on the page, I’m not sure it even makes sense in anyone’s life anymore. If you are writing in any form and you are driven to create time distortions, disruptions, fragmentations, displacements, rearrangements, liminalities, loop-de-loops, repetitions, layers, then join us on July 17th and 18th. In person. On the first day, Lidia and the entire Corporeal Squad will each run you through some portals around writing with time disruptions, and on the second day Lidia and Domi will throw some mean on it, get down to it, show you four strategies for why, when, and how to write against the grain of linear time. We’ll eyeball some great examples, too. Participants will walk away with works in…
