Join Ellen as she leads a workshop in writing poetry inspired by the classic folklore and fairy tales selected for this year’s 5th Annual NICE Project! Ellen guides participants in generating several poems, and shares strategies for revising. Participants will leave with one or more drafts to revise with an eye towards possibly presenting at the 5th Annual NICE Event in October.
Ellen’s writing has appeared in Northwest Review, Marlboro Review, The Sun, Oregon Humanities, High Desert Journal, The Stay Project, youshare.com, The Polk Street Review, Oregon Home, and Going Green, an anthology from the University of Oklahoma Press. Besides teaching writing at private venues, Ellen also teaches writing and literature at Oregon State University and works as a writing coach and editor. A graduate of Noblesville High School, she is thrilled to be back this summer to teach at LSS!
