Allow your inner self to come out on the page. Confess something -- even if it's just to yourself.

Being our true selves can be hard, especially on paper. This Writing from the Inside Out seminar is geared to help our most authentic selves come out and provide a space to say what might be hard to say in a positive, supportive environment.

We will be writing, reading, and discussing what it means to tell our truths, how important it is to do so, and how to translate that truth to paper using various writing exercises.

This is not just for poets but for anyone who feels like they have something to say.

Students will be reading individual poems that fall under confessional writing. There are no full texts, but seminar attendees can expect to read excepts by Olivia Gatwood, Ebony Stewart, and others.
