Description

For November, The Backwaters Press has invited our October reading series guests to faciliate the workshop: Anna Monardo and Emily Borgmann. At this workshop, we will have prompts to generate new writing.

Please RSVP by October 27th for this event. Spots are limited.


Information about the facilitators:

Excerpts from Anna Monardo's novel Falling In Love with Natassia (Doubleday, 2006) first appeared in Prairie Schooner and were nominated for Pushcart Prizes. Her first novel, The Courtyard of Dreams (Doubleday, 1993), set largely in southern Italy, was translated into German, Norwegian and Danish, and was nominated for a PEN/Hemingway Award and recommended for the National Book Critics Circle Award. Monardo’s stories, essays and poems have been anthologized, featured on National Public Radio, and appeared or are forthcoming in The Sun, More, Hotel Amerika, Cimarron Review, Huffington Post, and Poets & Writers, among other magazines and journals. A three-time recipient of Nebraska Arts Council Individual Artist Fellowships in fiction and creative nonfiction, she has also received fellowships from Yaddo, MacDowell, the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts and the Djerassi Foundation.
