Madwomen in the Attic, WV, Creative Writing Workshops

Madwomen in the Attic, WV, Creative Writing Workshops
The Frank and Jane Gabor West Virginia Folklife Center

Fairmont State University

Poetry Workshop—Fridays 10:00 am – 12:00 noon
(no class March 15)

February 1 – April 26, 2103 (12 weekly classes), $175/workshop

This class will focus on workshopping your poetry, based on the idea that reading your work aloud and responding to the work of others—is integrally tied to the development of writing. We’ll talk about how to find your voice, how to hear and honor your own internal dreams and visions, how to value your own work and put yourself first. The skills of listening to critique and offering comments that are specific and based on craft will be emphasized.

Tuition includes a copy of Voices from the Attic, the annual anthology of creative writing by the Madwomen in the Attic, published by Carlow University Press.

About the instructor: Lori Wilson has been a member of the Madwomen in the Attic since 2007. She is the author of the poetry collection, House Where a Woman (Autumn House Press, 2009).  Her poems and reviews have appeared in literary journals such as Women’s Review of Books, Southern Poetry Review, Salamander, Kestrel, Cerise and 5 AM. A 2012 recipient of the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation Creative Fellowship at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts, she holds an MFA in Poetry from Drew University and lives in Morgantown, West Virginia.
All workshops are open to beginning through advanced writers. Space is limited to 12 writers per workshop.
