Becoming Literary Witnesses
Suitable for those Age 16+
This is a FREE event but spaces are limited and must be booked in advance.
Artsland poet and writer-in residence at An Creagan, Nancy Cook from Minnesota, USA describes the workshop:
‘In bird by bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life, Anne Lamott reminds us over and over that good writing is about telling the truth and about reaching toward an ethical core.
In this workshop we will experiment with writing techniques that carry us toward truth as we observe it through the lenses of historical events, diverse cultures, and social institutions. Using a few simple exercises, and inspired by examples from successful literary witnesses, we’ll draft poems and compressed creative prose that expose and explore the realities of worlds we witness and experience.’
