Led by Alexis Buryk, a multidisciplinary artist, educator, and speaker with experience in writing, theater, film, and photography. She holds an MFA in Writing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has taught at StoryStudio Chicago and Nashi Predky, a 2023 Ukrainian Genealogy conference. Her written work has been featured on stage in the virtual cabaret, Twentysomething (2020), online at Apartment Therapy, and in The Ukrainian Weekly, while her photographic work has been featured in The New York Times, New York Magazine, and Brides.

This 6-week Zoom class is designed for individuals at any stage of their writing journey, from those seeking innovative ways to enhance their creative writing practice to those desiring a peaceful community setting for journaling. Mindful Ink offers an unparalleled opportunity to break free from the mundane writing blahs through a series of instructor-led 60-minute sessions each week, with each class fostering an environment of deep focus and creativity.

Throughout the course, participants will engage in dynamic generative writing sprints, drawing inspiration from the intricate blend of visual arts and the profound meanings of select words.

This six-week spring will delve into the rich linguistic roots of "tenere," a word signifying both the act of stretching and holding, unraveling its influence through words like tender, patient, tenable, and portent, among others. This exploration invites participants into a meditative space, allowing for the freedom to navigate through various genres or reflect on personal writing practices.

COURSE TAKEAWAYS:

  • Mastery of deep focus techniques, vital for understanding the complex nature of words and their multifaceted meanings.
  • Innovative strategies to incorporate visual art into the writing process, stimulating imagination and creativity.
  • A toolkit of generative writing exercises designed to overcome writer's block and inspire continuous writing flow.

Embark on this creative expedition with Mindful Ink, and transform your writing practice into an art form that resonates with depth, clarity, and purpose. Whether you're looking to expand your narrative skills, explore new artistic dimensions, or find solace in written expression, this course promises a rewarding experience that transcends the conventional boundaries of writing.
