This workshop considers ways into your “memory palace,” with its stored treasure of objects and events. Students will be encouraged to create “from the heart to the breath to the line,” with attention to “how you sound.”

Hettie Jones is the author of twenty-three books for children and adults, including three poetry collections. Her first, Drive, won the Poetry Society of America’s Norma Farber Award. Jones is on the faculties of the New School’s MFA Writing Program and the 92nd Street Y Poetry Center.
