Registration is closed

Are you a sober or sober-curious writer?  In this workshop we will explore the role of alcohol in the process and lore of writing, the stereotypes of writers who drink, how using alcohol can help or hinder the creative process, and how to explore writing without drinking. We'll also cover some practical tips on writing memoirs where alcohol or substance use is part of the story.

JENNIFER KEITH plays bass for the rock band Batworth Stone. Her poems have appeared in Sewanee Theological Review, The Nebraska Review, The Free State Review, Fledgling Rag, Unsplendid, Best American Poetry 2015, JMWW, and elsewhere. Keith received the 2014 John Elsberg poetry prize, and was a finalist in the 2021 Erskine J. Poetry Prize from Smartish Pace. Her first full-length book of poems, Terminarch, was chosen by David Yezzi for the 2023 Able Muse Book Award and is due to publish in 2024. She lives in Baltimore, Maryland.
