The Eleventh Hour
Mon, 07/17/2017 -
11:00am to 12:00pm

This lecture will consider what is at the heart of critique and discuss the relationship between the workshop and places of worship, confessional boxes, crying rooms, hospitals, wombs, therapist offices, museums, and trash cans. When the writer brings her stories and poems into workshop, should she disappear? Replace her body with the page? And why do we bring our poems and stories into workshop anyway? To air them out? To rescue and repair? To heal them from our loneliness? What are we after and what are we given back? Sabrina Orah Mark will share her experiences with the traditional academic workshop, and the workshop she leads out of her garage.
