Workshop: Writing with Personae

  • New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA) 2800 Chartres Street New Orleans, LA, 70117 United States (map)

As poets, we go to the page to say something. But what to do when something gets caught in our throat, or when we feel stuck in our habits? Invoking personae can be a powerful means to transform our voice, style, and even subject matter. In this one-day workshop, we’ll explore methodologies to call someone else into the room to help us say the things we can’t say alone. Participants will be guided through meditation, writing, and drawing prompts to surface the persona who’s waiting to work with you. No experience necessary, but please bring your notebook if you have one.
