Poetry 1: Generative Workshop with Bill Brown (Sept. 29)

from 50.00

This workshop is for anyone working in poetry, memoir, or mixed genre works. Prompts will dig into personal histories, landscapes, and events that deal with the inside self vs. the outside self or selves—i.e., the news inside vs. the news outside. We will share poems contemporary authors have published on these issues and themes, and handouts will present other topics to write about and prompts to write from. Please come to write and share, as the best workshops develop from a community of voices. For those interested in submitting for publication, we’ll discuss regional journals that are good starts.
