Writing Workshop at IWWG NYC Conference April 15th

What can Poetry and Fiction learn from each other? Join me at the International Women's Writing Guild Conference at Poets House this Sunday, April 15th, and find out!

Poetry and fiction are perceived as separate and opposing forms, governed by different values and objectives: fiction, as leading with narrative and characterization; poetry, as a more effective vehicle for abstraction and the aesthetics of language. In this workshop, we will examine how the structures and devices of one form can generate stronger work in the other and provide a framework for editing. We will look at how the characterization and logistics of fiction can sharpen the purpose of your poems, and how poetry can calibrate the voice and language of your fiction, and act as a catalyst for experimentation.
