About this event

MCC’s Creative Writing Forum returns with a 1-day event on October 23, 2021

"(Re)Invention" will invite speakers to address the use of concrete tools of research, characterization, irony, prosody, and more to find inspiration for a new project or breathe new life into a project that’s stalled

Featured presenters: Aimee Molloy, Iva-Marie Palmer, and Teri Youmans

After writing all day, participants will enjoy a reading by Nebraska State Poet, Matt Mason.

An open mic will follow.
