The Benedictine Institute of Leadership, Ethics and Social Justice’s Center for Active Learners program, in cooperation with the Mount Marty College Creative Writing program and the Great Plains Writers Tour, is offering a two-hour writers’ workshop on Wednesday, November 20 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.  The workshop entitled, “Writers’ Workshop: the Poet Within, the Poetry of Memory and Place”, will be led by guest artist, Maria Mazziotti Gillan, from Hawthorne, NJ.

The workshop is limited to 25 participants and will use the varied experiences of our daily lives to unearth stories and discover how the places in which we find ourselves affect the way we experience the world.  Participants are asked to bring a paper, a pen, and the willingness to take risks.  The workshop is free for Center for Active Learners members; membership cost is $25.

To save a place in the workshop, contact Sr. Cynthia Binder at cbinder@mtmc.edu or 668-1463; or Andy Henrickson at ahenrickson@mtmc.edu or 668-1495.
