About the workshop:

In this workshop focused on writing in persona, you’ll explore writing in other voices. When poets consciously construct filters for their voices, they are freed to address the world directly. Sometimes you can be your true self when you’re wearing a mask. Other times you take shelter behind the mask long enough to discover exactly what you need to say when you’re ready to take it off. Whichever way works for you, you’ll generate new poems and take home drafts to polish.

About Nicole Stellon O'Donnell:

Nicole Stellon O’Donnell’s first collection, Steam Laundry, won the 2013 WILLA Literary Award for Poetry. Her next book, You Are No Longer in Trouble, a memoir-in-flash about being a teacher, a student, and a principal’s daughter is forthcoming in March 2019 from the Marie Alexander Series. Everything Never Comes Your Way, a collection of poems, will be published by Boreal Books in 2020.
