Free every 2nd and 4th Thursday at 6 PM!
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’s writer: Nicole Hylton
As former poet laureate Joy Harjo once wrote, “The world begins at a kitchen table.” The kitchen is rife with opportunities to begin (or expand) stories. How often have you had a monumental conversation over a meal, or poured your heart into a dish for a loved one?
In this generative workshop, we will consider food as a vessel for other elements of story building. How can we use a meal to illustrate conflict or build character? What can we learn about ourselves and our relationships by pausing to examine food? This workshop is intended for prose writers (fiction and nonfiction), but all genres are welcome.
Nicole Hylton is a writer-of-all-trades originally from Southern Maryland. She writes short stories, poetry, nonfiction essays, and has completed two novellas, Internet Official and Dropping Her Gloves. Her work has appeared in The Doctor TJ Eckleburg Review, Aethlon, Little Patuxent Review, and Wraparound South. Nicole received her MFA in Creative Writing from Northern Arizona University, where she also taught composition and creative writing. She lives in Flagstaff with her husband and their beloved one-eyed black cat.
