Are you writing what is urgent to you? Are you staring at a blank page because you feel obligated to write what others expect? Or have you collected pieces of writing, and desire feedback in a professional environment? This is a multi-genre writing workshop for both beginning and experienced writers who need to reinvigorate their writing practice and find inspiration. Oftentimes we lose sight of writing what is urgent to us, those subjects that are emotionally and intellectually relevant. But it is that pull that has always made us come back to the page seeking to put these important ideas into words. Through guided exercises, we will use favorite lyrics, poems and stories to create our own found poetry, black-out poetry, flash fiction pieces and stories--constructed around emotionally relevant and urgent subjects. Constructive feedback will be offered by the instructor and fellow students in a supportive environment. Writers from marginalized communities (writers of color, writers with disabilities, writers from the queer and LGBT community) are encouraged to attend.
