Presenter: Denise Low
Embellishing Prose and Poetry with Memoir
This presentation will take place via Zoom.
Louise Gluck wrote: “We look at the world once, in childhood. The rest is memory.” We will learn ways to transform memory into memoir using focus, invention, and deeper explorations. In the workshop, plan to write, edit, share, and discuss (or not—auditors are welcome). Bring a short poem or prose paragraph about any subject for experimentation.
Denise Low, the 2nd Kansas Poet Laureate, is a founding member of Indigenous Nations Poets. Her memoir Turtle’s Beating Heart: A Lenape Family Story of Survival will be released in a new edition, 2023, and her Jigsaw Puzzling: Essays (Meadowlark, 2022) is part Covid memoir and part lyrical essays—with some poems braided in. She has awards from the Kansas Center for the Book (4), Red Mountain Press, National Endowment for the Humanities, and others. Low teaches for Baker University and now resides in Sonoma County, California.
