BackSpace: a collective approach to Writer’s Block

Introducing a group that welcomes anyone who is all too familiar with the ambivalent relationship that a writer can have with their “backspace” key…

As the NoCo Arts & Cultural District of Jeffersonville grows and flourishes, there’s no better time to integrate a growing community of literary artists and writing enthusiasts. Beginning January 2021, NoCo Arts Center resident artist Sarah Young will be hosting a monthly meetup that welcomes adult writers of all levels to participate in creative exercises and explorative collaboration.

So, whether you’re accomplished or apprentice at best, this group will serve as a supportive community for any writer seeking out alternative avenues of inspiration.

LIMITED SEATING SESSION:
October 19th 7:00pm

Unique
Exercises

Writing can feel like work sometimes, and monotony can be detrimental for the creative process. With cooperative group exercises, we’ll mine into each other’s imaginations and remove the restrictions that stunt us mid-sentence.




Creative
Prompts

Using various prompting methods, we will dedicate time diving into a thought or passage and building a better understanding of our own compositional strengths and weaknesses

Peer
Reviews

Bring your work along to share with others. This will always be a safe place where any writer should feel comfortable sharing and providing feedback to other members without judgement or negative criticism.

GROUP MEETUPS WILL BE HOSTED IN PERSON AT THE NoCo ARTS CENTER IN JEFFERSONVILLE ON THE 3rd TUESDAY OF EACH MONTH.
VIRTUAL ATTENDANTS MAY BE ASKED TO ATTEND A SEPARATE SESSION, IF THE GROUP IS TOO LARGE OR THE INTEREST FOR VIRTUAL SESSIONS GROWS MORE POPULAR.
DISTANCED SEATING IS AVAILABLE AND MASKS ARE OPTIONAL FOR THE COMFORT OF ALL ATTENDANTS
MORE INFO WILL BE SENT VIA EMAIL PRIOR TO THE MEETUP DATE.


The muscles of writing are not so visible, but they are just as powerful:
determination, attention, curiosity, a passionate heart.
