Offered on Saturday, February 28 to conference attendees:
Telling Truth: Exploring Personal Narrative in Poetry, a writing workshopOllie Schminkey, ollieschminkey.weebly.com
Poetry can be an important part of how we process important (and often very difficult) events in our lives, and sharing those poems with an audience can be cathartic for the author, as well as powerful and eye-opening for the audience. In this writing workshop led by Ollie Schminkey, poets of all experience levels are welcome to explore their own truths through writing. Focused on personal narrative, this hands-on workshop will guide writers through the process of writing and sharing vulnerable work, in a variety of styles. Bring a writing utensil, paper, and a good attitude!
