Life is filled with loss from a mother taking her child to their first day of school, the death of spouse, the realization that a relationship can never be, or the regret over things left undone and words left unsaid. 

Former Paris Writers Workshop participants poet Pamela Manché Pearce, whose chapbook, Widowland, has recently been published by Green Bottle Press (London) and memoirist Debra Whittam, author of Everything That's Been Waiting, meet again at WICE to share their personal experiences and the challenges they face as writers to illuminate these painful and universal subjects. 

About the Presenters:  Pearce’s poems, widely published and anthologized in the US and abroad, can be found in The Widow’s Handbook Anthology (Kent State University Press), ArsMedica (Toronto) and The Brooklyn Review.  She is also the recipient of two Woolrich Creative Writing Fellowships from Columbia University and is currently Poet-at-Large on Planet Poet’s Words in Space radio show on WIOX.

Debra Whittam received two first place awards and two honorable mentions in the Royal Dragonfly Book Awards Competition for her recently published book, Am I Going to Be Okay? Weathering the Storms of Mental Illness, Addiction, and Grief.  She won first place for First Time Author, Non-Fiction and first place in Inspirational/Self-Help.  The Honorable Mentions she received were for Best Cover Design and Biography/Autobiography/Memoir.
