Do you ever wonder if established writers, even those teaching at universities, go to writing workshops themselves? The answer: whenever we get the chance!
I am delighted to be taking part in a poetry workshop this Sunday with the internationally acclaimed poet, Hilda Sheehan, as part of the Wantage Poetry Workshop.
Once in awhile, it is a relief to give “story” a rest, and just look at what comprises a phrase. It is important for any writer to occasionally look closely at language, experiment with the compression of language, pay attention to the rhythms and connections.
Anyway, a few of my friends will be there, and while I am mostly hermetic and self-contained here in what could be called Little Library On The Prairie, it is nice to get out one in awhile…
