It’s always exciting for me to introduce new writing techniques and teachers to my friends and students, particularly when it’s as rewarding an experience as my NYU colleague Robert Black’s Writing In Stillness.
If you will be in the NYC area on October 18th and want to take your writing to the next level, I urge you to sign up for this one-day event.
At the writing of this post, there are only 3 spots left in the class and it always sells out fast.

Writing in Stillness with Robert Black
In a quiet, reflective, and focused setting, this one-day workshop introduces meditation into the writing process, exploring how this particular source of clarity might inform and shape the development of narrative. Alternating periods of guided meditation instruction, blocks of writing, sharing your work and dialoguing about it, you are invited to unfold and deepen a story over the course of the day. Your “story” may take the form of fiction, nonfiction, memoir or verse, and you may arrive with a particular story idea in hand or discover it in the early—or waning—moments of writing or meditating.
This workshop is ideal for those looking to gift themselves with a day of peaceful creativity, to begin a long-considered writing project, to refine and tweak a work-in-progress, or simply to check out something new. Students should bring whatever writing implements (including laptops) will support their efforts, as well as a pillow or two if meditating on the floor would be more comfortable than sitting on a chair. The workshop will conclude with a celebratory reading of participants’ work.
