In this two-hour workshop, Taylor Brorby will help participants get their pen moving. We'll read short, vivid texts together, and think about how we might borrow similar techniques for our own writing. Packets of reading will be provided, and we'll have a great conversation to help meet our writing goals.
Taylor Brorby is the author of Crude: Poems and Coming Alive: Action and Civil Disobedience. His work has been published in The Huffington Post, North American Review, Orion, among others. He teaches at Hobart and William Smith Colleges and is contributing editor at North American Review. He's at work on three separate memoirs that deal with western North Dakota, growing up gay on the Northern Great Plains, and being a Type 1 Diabetic.
This project is supported in part by a grant from the North Dakota Council on the Arts, which receives funding from the state legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.
