Sarah Carson‘s work has appeared in The Christian Century, DIAGRAM, Guernica, the Minnesota Review, and the New Orleans Review, among others. She is the author of two full-length poetry collections–Poems in which You Die (BatCat Press) and Buick City (Mayapple Press)–and several chapbooks. Born and raised in Michigan, she now lives in Chicago with her two dogs.
Prompt-a-Palooza: Why sit around talking about writing when we can just get to it?! This session will feature a number of idea-generating strategies for those days when there just seems to be nothing to write about. We’ll talk about where an idea for a poem comes from and learn a number of prompts that you’ll be able to use again and again when writer’s block strikes. And we’ll write, write, write.
Bring 15 or more copies (2 page limit) of a poem you want critiqued.
