Max Garland workshop April 26

From the desk of Kathie Giorgio, Director, AllWriters' Workplace & Workshop LLC:
WAUKESHA – Have you ever wondered where you truly belong in the vastness of the universe? Then we have the celebrity lecturer for you! AllWriters’ Workplace & Workshop welcomes special guest lecturer Max Garland with his workshop, POETRY & PLACE.
Whether you dream of realms beyond imaging or like to stay right here at home, you’ll love looking at the concept of place through the medium of poetry. Great works both classic and modern will guide you to a more meaningful understanding of your location in the world. Inspired by this journey, you’ll be encouraged to create new poetic works, on which you will receive real time comments and reactions.
MAX GARLAND is author of The Postal Confessions, winner of the Juniper Prize for Poetry, and Hunger Wide as Heaven, which won the Cleveland State Poetry Center Open Competition in 2006, as well as a chapbook Apparition. His work has appeared in Poetry, New England Review, Gettysburg Review, Georgia Review, Best American Short Stories, and many other journals and anthologies. He has received a NEA Fellowship for Poetry, Michener Fiction Fellowship, a Bush Literary Fellowship, the Tara Short Fiction Prize, and fellowships from the Wisconsin Arts Board in both poetry and fiction. He lives and teaches in Eau Claire, and is the current Poet Laureate of Wisconsin.
Celebrity Saturdays are a great chance to broaden your knowledge of what it takes to be successful and to learn from writers who are already knee deep in an author’s life.
