Beyond the Book Deal: Creating Opportunities For Your Creative Writing

In this workshop, we will be exploring opportunities for finding your creative writing a home and an audience that go beyond the book deal. We will focus especially on creating opportunities with organizations that work with and for marginalized communities. This workshop will help you identify your dreams as a creative writer, and show you a potential path toward reaching those dreams.

This workshop is the second in a series of five Artist Education workshops -- a new collaboration between Patrick's Cabaret and Soo Visual Arts Center (SooVAC), intended to create collaborative space for artists to share their skills with our creative community, to strengthen relationships and build resilience.

If you're interested, go ahead and register here. Space is limited, so make sure you do so soon! Also, we have scholarships available for those who can't make the $5-10 sliding scale.

This workshop is led by Halee Kirkwood, a queer writer of anishinaabe descent who has been attempting their whole life to perfect the art of the side-hustle. Kirkwood has written with the website The Body Is Not An Apology, and has published several poems with the speculative literature magazine Strange Horizons. Kirkwood graduated from Northland College, a small, environmentally-focused college near Lake Superior, has served on the editorial team of Aqueous Magazine, and is currently pursuing an MFA in creative writing at Hamline University with an emphasis in everything.
