Memory, Fiction, and the Emotional Truth: A Poetry Workshop with Bill Brown

James Britton said, “What is memory but how we think it must have been?” Alisa Ostriker wrote, “The world is made of stories…not of atoms.”

Come to explore your memories, and stories, real or imagined.

We will write from prompt ideas and poetry models, and I will give strategies and ideas from past experiences, real and imagined. The greatest gift I can give participants is for them to leave my workshop with the beginnings and first drafts of real poems.
