Class meets at Literary Arts, 925 SW Washington
Instructor: Neil Aitken
for writers at all levels

Submerged, hidden, buried, or simply forgotten, much of who we are lies unexamined and unexplored, just waiting for the right question to spark our minds into language. The goal of this generative writing workshop is to ask those questions. Through a set of prompts and exercises, participants will explore what lies at the heart of their writing and what gives shape to their voice.

Neil Aitken is the author of two books of poetry, The Lost Country of Sight (Anhinga), which won the Philip Levine Prize, and Babbage’s Dream (Sundress), as well as a chapbook of poetry, Leviathan (Hyacinth Girl Press). He is the founding editor of Boxcar Poetry Review and his own poems have appeared or are forthcoming in The Adroit Journal, American Literary Review, Southern Poetry Review, and many other literary journals.
