All Levels. Memoir and poetry are arguably closely aligned. Which are you doing? Maybe both. Join nonfiction writer Samantha Updegrave and poet/fiction writer Stephanie Hammer to explore the truthy-poetic world of flash nonfiction and the prose poem. We’ll do freewrites and prompts and play with shaping subject matter from your own experience in ways that move toward narrative and toward poetry.
