Write what you know: This most common of writing advice can also be the most confining—but only when limited to your own personal experiences. Instead, this generative weekend workshop will invite you to take on other lives and voices in your poems, to write from perspectives, time periods, and even genders not your own.

Workshop leaders Nickole Brown, whose collection Fanny Says chronicles the life of her maternal grandmother, and Jessica Jacobs, whose Pelvis with Distance pushes past the legend of Georgia O’Keeffe to find the woman beneath, will guide you through the process of imagination and research required to write a life outside your own.

No poetry experience is required; writers at all levels are encouraged to attend.
