In this workshop we will explore the contents of our interiors to see what curiosities we can bring to the light. We may include artifacts from nature as well as our personal histories. We will write from the images, sounds, histories, moments, and places that have long held our imaginations. We will look at texts from Stacy Szymaszek, Mei Mei Berssenbrugge, Julie Patton, and others.
For more information, or to register, visit Woodland Pattern or call (414) 263-5001.
Brenda Coultas will also give a reading with Stacy Szymaszek on Saturday, November 21 at 7 pm. The reading is FREE for workshop participants.
