For some of us, questions like ‘where are you from?’ are benign, easy to answer; for others, they leave us wordless. In this workshop, we’ll read short pieces about roots and home and write in response to deep, thought-provoking prompts to answer that question. By the end of our session, you will have the start of 2 new pieces. Readings will be sent ahead of time. The workshop is open to writers in all genres, all levels.
