As We Go This Way: Multigenre Class with Bill Brown

from 50.00

In this three-hour class with poet and award-winning teacher Bill Brown, you’ll experiment with writing in the present from the past, writing in the past from the present, tributes (negative and positive), personal journeys (at home and away), and more. Come to write. Come to share, if you wish. Hearing other writers’ words often helps us consciously and sub-consciously find our shapes and conclusions. Bring a snack. We will work straight through.
