Fall Cafe Crawl and Writing Marathon
Thanks to all the participants who came out for our September 14th writing marathon in Lower Downtown.
What is a writing marathon?
The model for the writing marathon comes first from Natalie Goldberg, whose book Writing Down the Bones deserves credit for inspiring the kind of writing marathons we do. She taught us the basic protocol: write, read your writing to others, and say only "thank you" after each reading. And do this again and again for as long as you can. That is the model in a nutshell (http://www.nwp.org). A writing marathon does not imply that we'll be covering 26.2 physical miles of the city of Denver.
