[Workshop] FOLDING WORDS: Landscape & Memory

If you’ll be in the Lakes Region the first week of April, come write with me on 4 April 2019, 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the Meredith Community Center. We will explore the intersection of landscape and memory through creative writing exercises. You’ll be free to use my guided prompts in the genre of your choice, and will be invited to share your results. Follow-up editorial and publication opportunities at Folded Word will be available to you for any short works inspired by the workshop’s prompts.

Registration is $25 and includes a copy of THE MAGIC RECTANGLE by Sandra S. McRae. This workshop is limited to 6 participants, so everyone will get focused attention.

This will be the first in a series of workshops held in my hometown and is designed to serve writers of all genres — poetry, fiction, and non-fiction alike. If you’re a writer living in Northern New Hampshire, you know that workshops north of Concord are hard to find. I hope you’ll find my Folding Words series engaging and effective.

If you have any questions about how the Folding Words series will work, please fill out the comment form below. And if evenings don’t work for you, please let me know alternate days of the week and times that are better. I’m happy to schedule a daytime session if there’s enough interest.

Journal Snippet: England 2018

While Sitting in the Remnants of Reading Abbey on the UK’s National Poetry Day
4 October 2018, England

Above the flint-filled ruins and
The Blade, a Red Kite
glides ‘round on thermals, never lands
or feasts within this site
of dissolution. Two Magpies, though,
pick at the only flesh on abbey’s bones:
a wall-top meadow that centuries have sown.

Poem patterned after the second stanza of Tudor-poet Henry Howard’sComplaint of the Absence of Her Love Being Upon the Sea.”
