Lac Cruces Press Women Presents “Writing as Practice”

Las Cruces Press Women presents a workshop by Susan Tweit, award-winning author, teacher, and former host of KRWG-FM’s Wild Lives, on Friday, Nov. 6, 1-5 p.m. at St. Clair Winery and Bistro, 1800 Avenida de Mesilla in Las Cruces. From 5-6 p.m., Las Cruces Press Women will host a private reception for workshop participants only, and an open book signing will follow at 6 p.m.

Writing As Practice: Finding and Tending The Voice of Heart and Spirit
In a world where we’re in constant contact via cell phone, text, Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, and email, how can we tune in to the “small, still voice” of our own heart and spirit? In the constant busyness of work, family, and community obligations, where do we find the time and energy to tend our own writing? Join award-winning writer Susan J. Tweit for a half-day workshop based on her new memoir Walking Nature Home, hailed by reviewers as “lovely, brave, inspiring” and “one book you don’t want to end.” Tweit will share the tools she has learned in transforming the work that earns her living–books, magazine features, newspaper columns, radio commentaries, lectures–into work that also nurtures her heart. Come prepared to explore, be moved, and to write!

Tools: Pencil and paper, laptop, whatever you need to write.

The workshop is limited to 20 pre-paid participants. The cost is $30 for current Las Cruces Press Women members, $40 for nonmembers, and $45 for the workshop plus membership to LCPW. Please RSVP to Elaine Stachera at 646-2959 by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 28. Payment instructions will be given at the time of RSVP and payment must be received by Tuesday, Nov. 3.
