WORDS FROM THE MYSTERY: Poetry Workshop with Linda Hogan 

Who knows how our best work comes to us? We write and when we look back at it, we see the one good line we didn't even know we wrote. This workshop is designed to generate new work that comes from the mystery of writing, the unexpected, the unplanned, and unanticipated. We will write without considering a topic, desire, or image, and yet it will all be present without the conscious mind planning it.

Led by LINDA HOGAN, a Chickasaw poet, novelist, essayist, playwright, activist, and internationally recognized public speaker. Only $25! Scholarships available. Drop us a note at info@splitthisrock.org to apply.

Near Farragut North on the Red Line and Farragut West on the Blue & Orange Lines. Wheelchair accessible.

Linda Hogan's most recent books are the poetry book, Indios (Wings Press, 2012); the poetry collection, Rounding the Human Corners (Coffee House Press, 2008); and the novel, People of the Whale (Norton, 2008). A new collection of poems, Dark.Sweet., is due in 2014. Her other novels include Mean Spirit, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and winner of the Oklahoma Book Award, the Mountains and Plains Book Award; Solar Storms, a finalist for the International Impact Award; and Power. Her other poetry books have received the Colorado Book Award and an American Book Award.
