As writers, we know our words have power, but have you ever thought about how that power might accrue from the force of each individual letter? In this class, we’ll look at the connections between our modern alphabet and ancient Runes. Then, we’ll explore the symbolic properties of each letter, learning how to incorporate their magic into our everyday lives—and, for storytellers, into our writing lives as well. Everyone will make their own set of wooden Runes. By the end of this auspicious Leap Day, you’ll be able to easily use this tool to gain a new perspective on any word and situation in life or in your writing. Please Note: this class requires a $12 supply kit provided by instructor, which includes a copy of The Runes Workshop by Jennifer Halls.
