Adult Programming Zoom 3

This writing workshop, for writers at all levels, will be held virtually on Zoom. Presented by Martha Greenwald, editor of the new book, "Who We Lost: A Portable COVID Memorial."

Writing is a healthy way to cope with grief, but it's often hard to get started. There’s so much we want to remember that we might feel overwhelmed, and the past three and a half years, underlined by the pandemic, have only heightened these feelings. In this workshop designed for writers at all levels, we will learn how to write short remembrances or “micro-memoirs.” We will craft stories recalling who we’ve lost by focusing on specific memories and details. You’re encouraged to jot down some memories/notes prior to class, and also to locate a personally important photograph or two to have with you for our prompts. At the end of the workshop, you will have gathered ideas and inspiration to develop and continue your writing project.

Martha Greenwald is the founding director/curator of The WhoWeLost Project (whowelost.org and whowelostky.org), and the editor of Who We Lost: A Portable COVID Memorial (Belt Publishing, 2023). Both the websites and the anthology emphasize the importance of remembering our loved ones in safe spaces, free from judgments, comments, and politics. Her first collection of poetry, Other Prohibited Items, was the winner of the Mississippi Review Poetry Series. She is the winner of the 2020 Yeats Prize for Poetry. Her work has appeared in Slate, Poetry, the Sewanee Review, the Threepenny Review, and Best New Poets. She has held a Wallace Stegner Fellowship and been awarded fellowships by both the Kentucky and North Carolina Arts Councils.
