One must be drenched in words, literally soaked in them, to have the right ones form themselves into the proper pattern at the right moment. ~Hart Crane
Classes begin Jan. 25th, and feature a full range of workshops, from beginning right up to advanced. Be sure to check out our newest classes: Visiting Authors, which meets each Friday night before readings at the DWC, from Jan. 29 thru March 6. And don't miss out on Silence in the Snowy Fields: Writing About Weather & Place with Nate Pritts. We have to live here . . . we might as well write about it.
Stay tuned for more faculty spotlights, book reviews and writing prompts.
