Bring It Back, Come Rewind: A Generative Workshop [Derrick Weston Brown]
Too often, writers find themselves in a space where the words won’t come, can’t come. Sometimes, writers may not be satisfied with what they are writing, or even know how the words are arriving to the page. There are other times when writers find themselves grappling with the unnerving reality that their beloved genre, may not be the accurate vehicle for the words they need to write. Each of these moments can stall one’s writing momentum and in some cases torpedo enthusiasm. This workshop, facilitated by Poet and Cultural Curator Derrick Weston Brown, will discuss and explore the ways in which writers can both return to the source of their writing fire by utilizing a series of exercises and resources to engage writers in finding their own way back from a loss of words.
