Traveling Mindset

March 17, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

$30

A Writing Workshop with Lara Tupper
Tickets: $30; to register visit the website: Traveling Mindset Tickets. Class limited to 25.

When traveling to a new place, we tend to notice and appreciate the details of our surroundings. As writer Alain de Botton says, we gain a “traveling mindset.” We stop to look at street signs and plant life; we send postcards home about what we see. The challenge is to apply this outlook to our everyday lives. In this writing class, we’ll discuss ways to approach familiar settings with fresh eyes and “notice what we have already seen.” No writing experience necessary, just a willingness to observe.

 
Lara-Tupper-hatLara Tupper is the author of A Thousand and One Nights (Harcourt), an autobiographical novel about singers at sea, and Off Island, a fictional account of Gauguin’s travels. She taught writing at Rutgers University for nine years and now presents workshops throughout Massachusetts. A jazz/pop singer, she remains a proud member of the Barry Manilow International Fan Club.
