(Re)Kindling is a three part series presented by Amanda McCormick and Kristen Zory King, offering a creative atlas designed to help writers reconnect to their practice. Through three distinct, nurturing, and highly curated offerings including a creative toolkit released in December, a three-day virtual retreat hosted in January, and a four week workshop in March, (Re)Kindling will help creative thinkers generate new writing, interrogate and reconnect to their creative impulses, and rekindle to joy of the artistic process. Participants can choose to participate in each offering piecemeal or conjointly, choosing the path that best suits their creative needs.

“(Re)Kindling facilitated a caring community, a space where I generated work I'm excited about, provided me with useful feedback, left me creatively open and inspired. I would highly recommend! —Rachael S.


“I learned a great deal about myself as a writer as well as where to look for inspiration and guidance during the (Re)Kindling retreat. I felt creatively rejuvenated and validated in my writing abilities. I was amazed by the work of my fellow writers in the retreat and everyone was very supportive. Kris and Amanda were incredible leaders who really nurtured us. I am so grateful!” —Karie E.
