“Writing With the World”: Award-Winning Writer Offers On-Line Workshop
On back-to-back Sundays, June 21 and again on June 28, 2020, Moriel Rothman-Zecher, nominated for the 2019 Dayton Literary Peace Prize, will lead an on-line writers’ workshop open to writers of fiction, poetry and creative nonfiction. Sponsored by Tecumseh Land Trust, the workshop will take place from 1-3:00 pm.
This two-part creative writing workshop--open to writers of fiction, poetry and creative nonfiction at any level--will create a miniature community, online, over the course of two sessions. In these sessions, we will use writing exercises, including those specifically catered to the fact that participants will be joining the class from their own location, and focused craft discussions to hone what it means for each of us to write with the world in times of pandemic.
Rothman-Zecher is the author of the novel Sadness Is a White Bird, which received the National Book Foundation’s ‘5 Under 35’ honor and won the Ohioana Book Award. His poems and essays have been published in The New York Times, The Paris Review’s Daily, Zyzzyva Magazine, The Common Magazine and elsewhere. He has taught creative writing at the Miami Writers Institute in Miami, FL, the Limmud Festival in the UK, and online via Catapult. His second novel is forthcoming from Farrar, Straus and Giroux in 2021. He lives in Yellow Springs, Ohio, with his family.
