“Hibiscus Tacos is a miracle of a story to be tasted as much as read, one that lands me firmly and tenderly in the body, while also lifting me into the ageless realms of spirit. I will return to this story again and again, to remind myself of the sweet immortality of Art and inspiration and love. ” –Mona Susan Power

August 6, 2022 1pm (Central) Writing the Difficult- Virtual Workshop led by ire’ne lara silva, Whether we’re writing from personal experience or on behalf of our characters going through difficult life experiences, it can be challenging to write poetry or prose that is alive, present, authentic, and risky. In this workshop, we’ll be trying several different approaches to really enter those places and find what we need there–for ourselves and our characters. Open to writers of all levels and genres.
