Writing History: It's Pleasures and it's Problems

Event Details

Writing about our personal histories and about where we come from can be joyful and challenging. How and where do we begin? How much research do we need to do? How do we tell or not tell the stories of others? In this workshop for writers of all levels, we explore how others have navigated these issues in their writing about Montana. Looking at the poems of Richard Hugo, M. L. Smoker, Ed Lahey, Corrie Williamson and others, we will see what they might have to teach us about our own writing. Be prepared to have a generous discussion where multiple viewpoints will be heard and held. All genres of writers are welcome. Please bring a notebook or laptop to write with.
