Sit in the café with local writers for a night of generative writing prompts, discussion, and time to write and find resources for publishing, etc. led by local writers. What’s a writer without their coffee?
This week, we’re joined by Oscar Mancinas.
Arizona Poet Laureate Alberto Ríos once wrote “words are our weakest hold on the world,” and this was before a global pandemic, and its consequent fallout, threw us all off our axes. This workshop aims not to recapture our hold on the world but to reimagine words we encounter daily and maybe take for granted. Through examples and exercises, we will (re)consider previously published texts and (re)work them into works of prose, poetry, or some mix thereof. Whether deliberate or happy accidents, the reimagined texts often comment upon their previous forms, begging us all to pay attention.
Oscar Mancinas is Rarámuri-Chicano poet and author. His most recent book is des____: papeles, palabras, & poems from the desert (Tolsun Books, 2022). He’s a proud resident of Mesa, Arizona’s Washington-Escobedo Neighborhood. Find him and his work at:
