This participatory lecture, titled Childhood and Intuition as Literary Inspiration will use anecdotes and illustrations from Kathleen’s own experience. She will talk about the role of childhood memory, walking, and intuitive use of a small daily notebook. Kathleen will invite participants to write a short piece (about 500 words) that can stand alone or go on to become the seed for a longer piece to be completed independently after your time together.
