Andrea Lawlor Finding the Signal Through the Noise July 7 to July 12, 2024 Time 9 am - 12 pm Discipline: Multi-Genre Open To All On-site Housing NOT Available - Off-site Housing Options
This Workshop Is Full

We have so many reasons not to write! Audre Lorde taught us that poetry is not a luxury and still we struggle to find the time or see the point. In this multigenre workshop, we will ask how and why to write in a world on fire. We’ll look to queer/trans writers for models of possibility. Through a series of exercises, we’ll practice listening for—and transmitting—our own signals through the noise. While there will be opportunities to share drafts and receive feedback, this is primarily a generative workshop. Bring a project you’re working on, or find something new here.


Andrea Lawlor teaches creative writing at Mount Holyoke College, is the recipient of a Whiting Award for Fiction, and has been awarded fellowships by Lambda Literary and Radar Labs. Their publications include a chapbook, Position Papers (Factory Hollow Press), and a novel, Paul Takes the Form of a Mortal Girl (Vintage/Knopf).
