Thomas More College Writer in Residence Richard Hague and Cincinnati Poet Laureate Pauletta Hansel lead a workshop on how the geographic region that shaped you can help shape your writing. Whether your region is the Ohio River Valley, Appalachia or beyond, this workshop will help writers of poetry or prose incorporate a sense of place.
Bring a brown bag lunch or eat lunch in the cafeteria.
Sponsored by the Thomas More College Creative Writing Vision Program.
