"Fragments of a Great Mystery": A Writing Workshop w/Mercy Carbonell & Sarah Anderson
Fragments of a Great Mystery: A Writing Workshop with Mercy Carbonell & Sarah Anderson

This Summer Writing Workshop, led by Sarah Anderson & Mercy Carbonell, provides a chance to explore the translational and horological power of writing from saved artifacts, preserved objects, the inherited stuff of our lives. Through Poetry, Lyric Reflection, Flash Fiction and the interweaving of Photography, we will unravel what the poet, Philip Levine, called the fragments of a great mystery. We will generate writing through prompts of our collected matter through time: a grandmothers silver thimble; a fathers leather baseball mitt; a scarf worn during the Allied Invasion in Africa; a daughters watercolor painting of a dragon in second grade; a friends tiny box of glitter. We may offer short readings such as Meg Day, Carolyn Forsche, Erica Plouffe-Lazure, Robert Hass. This workshop is designed for those who hold everything dear (John Berger) and want to capture in language the memory, imagination, story, essence of the tactile, physical and tangible. Each Monday evening, we will have the opportunity to experiment with new forms of writing as well as provide each other with feedback. The Workshop Series will culminate in an optional Word Barn reading.
