Four Writing Prompts: The Beginning of Four New Stories or Poems (Ken Waldman Workshop) - four writing prompts: the beginning of four new stories or poems. The more you write, the luckier you get–and each time you start a piece, there’s an opportunity to get luckier than ever. The trick is getting started. Here, you’ll not only begin four new pieces, but will learn strategies to begin many more. The session is open to writers of all levels and experience. Following the workshop, there will be a solo performance. In addition to being a fiddler (with nine CDs), Ken Waldman is a former college professor with an MFA in Creative Writing. He has eight full-length poetry collections, a memoir (about his life as a touring artist), a children’s book, and over 400 of his stories and poems have appeared in such journals as Poet Lore, Beloit Poetry Journal, and Quarterly West. A former Carrboro and Hillsborough resident, this will be first Orange County public appearance in over decade. He’s also be spending four days working in schools, plus will be performing Friday night, March 23, joined by multi-instrumentalists Riley Baugus, Adam Tanner, and Cary Moskovitz.
