$ WORKSHOP Writing from the Body with Nicole Lungerhausen
May 22, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm$25
As writers, we’re used to pulling from our conscious experiences, memories, and knowledge to inspire and create our work. Our bodies and the subconscious are also wise and rich resources for inspiration and for instilling a sense of joy, possibility, and permission in the writing process. In this workshop, we’ll use exercises focused on the five senses, breathwork, and theater-inspired movement to tap into the knowledge contained in our bodies and subconscious. You’ll walk away with new ways to bypass the internal critic, play and experiment, and find entry points for your writing, whether you’re drafting a new piece or revising existing work.
NICOLE LUNGERHAUSEN writes fantasy and science fiction, with a focus on stories that center hope and compassion, woman-identified characters, especially multi-generational narratives,
and non-romantic relationships. Nicole’s stories have been published by Abyss & Apex, Apparition Lit, Electric Spec, and Luna Station Quarterly, among others. Her writing was included in Abyss & Apex’s 2019 “Best
of” anthology, and received an honorable mention from Writers of the Future in 2020. Nicole’s latest work will be published by The Future Fire, a magazine of socio-political, feminist, and queer sci fi and fantasy, in June 2022.
A professional actor for 10+ years, Nicole takes a body-centered approach to writing, using sensory exercises, movement, and breath and voice work as part of the creative process. As a coach, she works with fiction and non-fiction writers to discover their voices and the stories they truly love to write, and with non-profits to create and tell stories about their work and why it matters. Nicole holds dual B.A.s in Creative Writing and Theater from San Francisco State University. She currently does her living, writing, and teaching in Greensboro, NC.
