Writing What You Don't Know

Age Group(s): Adult
Date: 9/15/2015
Start Time: 6:30 PM
End Time: 8:00 PM
 Writers are taught early on to “write what you know,” but writing beyond what we know encourages us to discover new insights and ways of thinking about world. In this workshop, we’ll discuss and write our own poems based on current events, facts, history, and in the voices of other people. By the end of this workshop, each writer will have a better understanding of how to “write what you don’t know” and walk away with a few new drafts of poems.

Angela Voras-Hills earned her MFA at UMass-Boston and was a fellow at the Writers' Room of Boston.

She has received awards from the Sustainable Arts Foundation and the Key West Literary Seminar. She is currently working with a group of writers to co-found a literary arts center in Madison--The Watershed: A Place for Writers.
