07/06/15 - 07/13/15 Allison Hedge Coke in Wallowa Lake, OR Summer Fishtrap 2015 Faculty & Workshops United States
Admission: Varied. Age restrictions: All Ages. Writing as Freedom Workshop: Coming together as creative community, we will take inspiration from our surroundings, our memories, and our daily lives. In our workshop, we will practice the art of close witnessing—and consider the barriers that typically restrict our ability to produce significant work. We will investigate our own poetics with dedication to our environment(s), culture(s), gender(s), history(ies), and lives as literary activists, students, mentors, and doers. We’ll work with the place and space to create new work, but also find time to simply be. Along with words, our humanity has a place here to cultivate new range. Come empty or full, but be open to what you might reach. Related post. More information
