Dzanc Creative Writing Day: DC
Barrelhouse is organizing the Washington, DC Edition of Dzanc Books' National Creative Writing Workshop Day on March 20, 2010. Workshops will be held across the country (40 states!), with all the proceeds going to support Dzanc's teaching and writers in residence programs. The DC workshop will be held from 1 til 5:00 at the Wonderland Ballroom (upstairs), at 1101 Kenyon Street, Washington, DC. It'll run you $50.
Seating is limited. Seriously. Sign up today.
Our workshop will be a small, hands-on kind of thing, with craft lectures, writing exercises, and discussion. Focusing on elements of poetry, prose, and the new forms emerging from their overlap, this event will give hands-on feedback and insightful instruction to established and aspiring writers, all with Barrelhouse's patented pop culture sensibility and sense of humor. Participants include Barrelhouse editors Dan Brady, Dave Housley, and Mike Ingram, as well as writer Laura Ellen Scott and poet and publisher Reb Livingston.
Oh yeah, we're doing the workshop in the upstairs of a bar. And a damn good one at that. Probably there will be happy hour afterwards. Something to consider, we suppose.
Each participant will receive a free copy of Barrelhouse, as well as ninja style writing skills, and a damn good time.
Sign up today!
