Creative Writing Workshops

Our motto is “Write Your Truth.” Creative writing workshops at the Cherry Tree Young Writers’ Conference are designed to help you discover the stories that matter to you. What is your truth? What is the voice you will use to tell it?

POETRY WORKSHOP, with Jehanne Dubrow

We experience the world through our five senses. But, sometimes when we’re writing, we can become so focused on big, abstract ideas like love, sadness, or anger, that we forget our job is to put readers inside the poem. In this workshop, we’ll read published poems that are rooted in vivid images, poems that feel so three-dimensional we could almost walk through them. We’ll also use a variety of writing prompts to draft new poems that connect with what we can see, taste, touch, hear, and smell.
