To celebrate National Poetry Month, the St. Edward's University Writer-In-Residence, Carrie Fountain, will be hosting a free writing workshop that is open to the public: Writing Where You Are (and Where You’ve Been). It will take place in the Maloney room on April 22nd from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm.
Our origins—geographic, spiritual, or familial—can often serve as the richest material for our writing. Through engaging exercises, this free, public writing workshop, led by award-winning poet and novelist, Carrie Fountain, will welcome participants to generate meaningful writing and to meditate on the nature of beginnings. No writing experience or expertise necessary.
Carrie Fountain’s poems have appeared in American Poetry Review, Tin House, and Poetry, among others. Her debut collection, Burn Lake, was a National Poetry Series winner and was published in 2010 by Penguin. Her second collection, Instant Winner, was published by Penguin in 2014. I'm Not Missing, her debut novel for young adults, will be published in 2018 by Flatiron Books (Macmillan).
