Open Door Writing Practice

Wednesdays in March and April 
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Where: ArtLab (Room U-7), Cubberley Community Center, 4000 Middlefield Rd, Palo Alto, CA, 94303

Engage your creativity- let your thoughts flow.

Poetry, prose, short stories - bring a notebook, show up to the page and see what you have to say.

We will write through 3 timed 10-15 minute sessions, responding to various prompts found by opening up a book and pointing to a phrase.

After writing, the group will have the opportunity to share aloud, or pass. No critique, sharing only. We are celebrating practice, gently observing our minds, where our creativity is guiding us, witnessing each truth as it unfolds.

These drop in sessions are FREE and open to the public.

Light time : West Virginia

Light time
My grandparents’ house.

The one street’s light
Hovers above the muddy ruts
                In the frozen lane.  

The car lights drive into the cone 
Cut out of the black night
Finding the wavering in the dark in which to park.

Holding up a broken gate.

The door to the house


And love spills out in warm yellow light
Diagonal golden strips upon the welcoming walk.

-Taun Relihan
