We will generate new material by mining the memories of our lives.
This is a workshop for all skill levels and writers of poetry, fiction or nonfiction. We will generate new material by mining the memories of our lives. Everyone has within them automatic stories, experiences that haunt them and won’t let go. What do we tell? What do we keep to ourselves? We will write toward a balance of the sacred and the memorable. Each participant will leave the workshop with the impression of a new essay, poem, or short story–one that is deeply felt–ready to be crafted.
Crystal Wilkinson, Kentucky’s Poet Laureate and author of The Birds of Opulence, Water Street, Blackberries, Blackberries, and her most recent book Perfect Black (a memoir in verse) leads this In-Person workshop. Women Writing for (a) Change Executive Director Lisa Rocklin hosts. Registration required.
This program is made possible by a grant from The Harris Family Fund.
We are offering two tuition levels ($50 and $25), as we do not want cost to be the barrier between anyone and this workshop. Additional financial support is available by completing this scholarship application at the time of your registration. Masks are required for this In-Person Workshop and will be available there.
