Write Your Way to Connection
Jenny Boyar’s Sunday Writing Series at Yoga Soup – which takes place the first Sunday of the month May-July, stems from the premise that writing can turn things that feel intangible and difficult into something tangible while also allowing us to invite others into our experience, something especially valuable in moments of isolation. The primary purpose of these virtual workshops is to create a space for writing, utilizing prompts and sharing in the work of other writers as a guide to come together to explore each other’s voices. No writing experience is required, and all sharing is optional.
Boyar, who received her PhD in English from the University of Rochester, has focused much of her teaching toward exploring writing at the intersection of literature and medicine, and she has led workshops and courses across a range of health and educational contexts. She currently puts her interests to practice as a medical writer specializing in neurosurgery. Profits from the $12 fee for the 2-3:15 pm workshops on May 3, June 7, and July 5 benefit the Organic Soup Kitchen Santa Barbara.
