The critic Harold Bloom once said “Shakespeare invented the human.” We won’t go that far, but much of what we think and feel about the world—how we construct our realities—comes from reading, from the works and words of authors we love. In this generative poetry workshop, we will explore how our reading can feed new writing.

*Boxed lunch included in all 10am-3pm Saturday workshops.

SheilaSheila Black is the author of four poetry collections, most recently: Iron, Ardent (Educe Press 2017) and Wen Kroy, winner of the 2011 Orphic Prize in Poetry. She is a co-editor of Beauty is a Verb: The New Poetry of Disability and The Right Way to be Crippled and Naked: The Fiction of Disability: An Anthology (both Cinco Puntos Press). She received a 2012 Witter Bynner Fellowship from the Library of Congress, for which she was selected by Philip Levine. She lives in San Antonio, Texas where she directs Gemini Ink.
