Apr 10, Writing Marathon, UNM Art Museum

Sponsored by the High Desert Writing Project, in partnership with the UNM Art Museum
This writing marathon will involve viewing the exhibit, brief discussions about the art in the Man Ray exhibition, and opportunities to write and share. Participants need not be accomplished writers, but are expected to have an interest in writing.

But what exactly is a Writing Marathon?
A Writing Marathon is a long period of time of sustained writing in an environment that is a resource of ideas and a source of inspiration. Place matters and writing marathons respect this. Writing Marathons offer the opportunity to take risks and share them with others, to be in new spaces and witness the influence it has on your work, and to listen to other's pieces. There are no rules, no pressure, and lots of encouragement from like-minded souls.
