09/20 – 10/25/2011: Writing the Body Poetic Workshop (Oakland)

How do we write about the body?

What does it mean to be embodied as a writer?

Where are our stories located in our bodies and what do they have to tell us?

In this five week multi-genre writing workshop, we will explore these and other questions. We will look at short literary excerpts and use writing exercises to generate new work that investigates the relationship between language and the body.

Writers of all levels and genres are welcome!
