Write Where You Live with Kierstin Bridger
May 29, 9:00 am-12:00 pm at Montrose Field House
Write here, write now. Don’t you find the sunsets in Montrose extraordinary? There is big sky here. To the alert observer river walks are coursing with life, waiting for us to drink in metaphors and rich detail. The seams between the past and new development make for startling contrasts in this western hub.
Let’s talk about how some of the best writers of place tap into the heart of where they live to deliver prize for the reader. We’ll look at examples of how setting can make our prose and poetry feel grounded and specific all the while creating a world which will fascinate readers. Whatever your genre; memoir, lyric, songwriting, non-fiction, or fiction we’ll discuss specific strategies to enliven our work. Prepare to write, read and discuss. We’ll spend time outdoors as well, walking, watching, and writing. Tuition for this class is $45. *Sign up for this and “Split Open Craft” for discounted combined tuition.
