A limited number of scholarships are available for each of our workshops. Writers who are low-income and/or of marginalized identities are particularly encouraged to apply.



Participants will spend three workshop sessions exploring recipes and poems from writers including Gwendolyn Brooks (her signature Frozen Fruit Salad), Lorine Niedecker (A Cooking Book), Thomas Meyer (Corn Close Kitchen), Ronald Johnson (American Table, Simple Fare), Jaime de Angulo (The Hangover Cookbook), and Robin Blaser (Dave’s Fabulous Recipes). We’ll sample Milwaukee Kitchen, a local made-for-YouTube cooking program featuring diverse gatherings of poets, writers, and food scholars. Our sessions will include generative prompts to dish up plenty of new writing, while encouraging recovery of regional recipes and domestic lore. Join Chuck Stebelton and the participants in Kitchen Counter Poetics on Sunday, July 31 for a culminating reading and potluck at Lynden Sculpture Garden. Free and open to the public.
