Getting Personal-Time, Memory & Form: Intermediate/Advanced Generative Mixed-Genre Workshop with Kristine Uyeda: Springfed Headquarters, Royal Oak, Friday nights, February 7, 14, 21, 28, March 7 & 14, 7-9 pm. An emotional intimacy with her subject can provide a writer with a powerful field of material, but also the challenge of writing without the benefit of distance. In the first session, we’ll spend time generating a body of material through a series of guided free-writes. In the following sessions, writers will apply various craft techniques and constraints to shape this material in a variety of ways. Through this process, writers will be able to experience how their material responds to the challenge of form/restraint and experiment with in different emotional and narrative registers. Workshop will include weekly quick-writes and a discussion of participants’ work from a previous prompt. This workshop is open to poets and short-form (250 words or less) prose writers. Limited to 8 writers. Kristine Uyeda is a Kundiman fellow whose poems and micro fiction have appeared in a number of journals and anthologies. She holds an MFA in Poetry from Vermont College of Fine Arts.
