Strange Words: Writing with the Lost, Unusual, and Untranslatable with Kimberly Lee

May 8, 2023 at 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

$10 – $20

Words are a writer’s currency. Add to your stash in this workshop, where we’ll use imaginative prompts to explore a wide variety of lost, unusual, and untranslatable words, transforming them into inspiration for extraordinary writing. We’ll experience how playing with and employing these words and their meanings can take our writing in new and unexpected directions, resulting in deliciously fresh flash pieces or the rich, gorgeous beginnings of a longer story.
