About this program
Memories are made of small moments. Working with memory moments, we can discover new ideas to form a base for creating stories.
In this hands-on, collaborative workshop, we’ll start with the writing prompt: “What is your earliest memory?” Together, we’ll create a series of group poems that are both specific and personal. We’ll also look at examples of how this same memory prompt inspired the verse novel “These Are Not the Words.”
This poetry writing workshop with Amanda West Lewis explores ways that our memories and dreams can spark ideas and springboard us into larger writing projects.
