About this course:

This course integrates the learning of introductory mindfulness practices with the opportunity to produce innovative creative work by working with the language that emerges through these practices. Students are encouraged to explore writing across genres—fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry. In addition to mindfulness and writing practice, we read and discuss work by contemporary writers whose work is directly or indirectly influenced by their mindfulness practice, such as Ruth Ozeki, Wendell Berry, Harryette Mullen, bel hooks, Arthur Sze and others. Mindfulness and the Creative Writer is suitable for both brand new and experienced mindfulness practitioners and creative writers.
