Southport, CT – Celebrate National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) with Pequot's first annual writer's conference Image, Memory, Event: A Workshop in Poetry and Prose on Saturday, November 17, 2018 from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Join Tim Tomlinson of the New York Writers Workshop for a day of workshops focusing on your creative process. Look at samples of poetry and prose that, through image and memory, capture the essence of an event. Use samples to write drafts of poems and narrative prose of your own, and then share your work with fellow writers. Open to those without experience and to those who’ve published volumes. Registration required at pequotlibrary.org. Limited to 20 participants. $100 for the day, lunch included. The all-day workshop breaks down as follows Session I: 11:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. (poetry), Session II: 1:10 – 2:45 p.m. (prose), Reading: 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. This workshop is open to both fiction and nonfiction writers.
