What’s In Your Blood?

April 16, 2016

Finding expression in your memories and experience taught by Cheryl Denise. Sometimes our own stories are the hardest to tell. This workshop will provide writing exercises that pull from our personal/family history. What is the landscape that shaped you? Using the five senses we will explore memories that open us up to the past and anchor us to the present. We will stretch memories from a beginning to an ending. I will share examples of poets whose writings reflect their history. We will have time to share our work. If there is still time left we will also explore the need for structure and creativity. How do you wake a sleeping muse? What writing disciplines and structures help you keep writing? We will discuss these questions and look at what other poets say about this. This program is part of the Calvin W. Price Appalachian Enrichment Series for 2016.
