Downtown Walk and Write with Sherrie Flick

August 27, 2021 @ 7:00 pm8:30 pm

Downtown Walk and Write with Author Sherrie Flick

Interested in getting outside and doing some creative urban exploring this summer? Writer Sherrie Flick will lead three guided hour-and-a-half writing and walking tours that use the urban environment for creative inspiration. Each session will focus on a different theme; the theme for this walk will be water, shape, and color. No experience necessary—just pen, paper, curiosity, and walking shoes.
