Invigorate your Writing with a powerful setting.This is an in-person program. Registration is required.
In this workshop, we explore the potential of place to help move our fiction, nonfiction, or poetry forward. We'll practice bringing real or imagined history, personification, and speculation to bear on our settings, and see what fresh imagery, themes, and points of view arise to invigorate our works in progress, or help us start something new.
Bring something to write with and on.
Optional: bring a work in progress if you have one!
