Home is a complicated place, full of bitter and sweet memories. In this workshop, participants will write poems that celebrate and critique the places we call home using excerpt from Watson’s This Side of Home and Margaret Walker’s Sorrow Home, as prompts.

Her middle grade novel, What Momma Left Me debuted as an ABA New Voices Pick. She lives in New York City where she teaches writing in the public schools.
