Better Writing Through Writing Groups with Ellen Morris Prewitt
Author Ellen Morris Prewitt will provide insight into her writing and work with budding writers at the Memphis Botanic Gardens. This seminar is for ages 16 and up.
Creative Writing Seminar: Better Writing Through Writing Groups. Learn how to set up both traditional writing groups (write on your own; critique in groups) and alternative writing groups (creating new work in the company of others); how to get the most out of your writing group; also, attendees might meet others who are interested in keeping the Festival enthusiasm going.
Ellen Morris Prewitt's fiction and essays have appeared in literary journals (Hotel Amerika, Barrelhouse, and Gulf Coast Literary Journal being her favorites); won contests (both the fiction and nonfiction contests of the Tennessee Writers Alliance, as well as the Memphis Magazine Fiction Contest); and received recognition (two short stories were nominated for a Pushcart Prize; one received a Special Mention). Her essay "Tetanus, You Understand?" was included as an example of metaphor in Fearless Confessions: A Writer's Guide to Memoir by Sue Silverman, and her nonfiction book was published by a small press (Making Crosses: A Creative Connection to God, Paraclete Press). Morris also recorded and released online her short story collection, Cain't Do Nothing with Love. Ellen founded and created a writing group for the homeless at the Door of Hope and has been facilitating writing groups for several years.
