This Valentine's Eve, join us for a different kind of Valentine's reading--one that doesn't focus on the happily-ever-afters but that instead lingers on all that is less than perfect love. We'll feature three special guest readers and will then open the stage to any and all Houston writers and poets for an open mic.
Sobre la memoria, Ted Kooser escribe que a veces pensamos en "algún objeto o evento del pasado, tal vez un reloj en la cocina de tu abuela, y de repente, parte de tu memoria se abre como una pequeña puerta y puedes ver todo tipo de detalles." Con esto en mente, discutiremos fotos personales para ayudarnos a abrir esa "pequeña puerta," para que podamos captar la memoria, ver todos los detalles evocados y generar el lenguaje para escribir sobre lo que descubrimos.
Writers and artists, refill your creative well this fall. Step away from your desk and practice fresh ways of looking, thinking, and recording landscapes both internal and external via a creative exploration of McGovern Lake at Hermann Park.
Free and open to the public: Creative explorations on the multilayered reality of migration in the US. Come and explore our creative activities that will have visitors engaging with the themes of Violette Bule’s exhibition, Can You Dream America, at Rice University’s Inferno Gallery.
WRITE WILD is a day-long creativity retreat focused on generating new ideas and work. In four distinct workshop sessions, each led by a different facilitator, you'll experiment outside your usual form, genre, and style, allowing you to peek around the corner of your usual creative process to discover what lies beyond.
