Taking Yourself by Surprise: A Writing Workshop
Saturday, May 14 - 1:00-4:30 PM
$50 -- Register Here
This writing workshop will feature exercies for breaking out of predictability. We all have writing habits based on our emotional and psychological patterns and these can put us in a writing rut. Pulitzer-Prize nominee Maurice Manning once commented on a manuscript, "All I can tell you about these poems is that they are emotionally decided." What does this mean? What did the poet do to break free from that hold and take risks? What can we do to get out of our routine and let new energy, new shapes, new voices come through? This is what we will expore together. Open to all, ages 16 through adult.
Sponsorship of the Author Series made possible by Annette Januzzi Wick &
Mark D. Manley, with gratitude for 25 years of Women Writing for (a) Change
