The artistic and emotional connection of poetry and memory is one of the most powerful and durable in literature. In this workshop, author and professor David Masciotra will lead attendees through poems, both classic and contemporary, written with the inspiration of memory and provide instruction in how to write a poem based on a singular memory. Each attendee will draft a poem documenting the emotional truth of an important moment or experience.
David Masciotra is the author of five books, including Mellencamp: American Troubadour and I Am Somebody: Why Jesse Jackson Matters. He is also a columnist with Salon.
