October Residency Showcase
December 6, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Our Creative Process
Join October’s writer-in-residence Tara Dairman, maker-in-residence Rorey King, and reader-in-residence Kathleen Willard as we share what we’ve been working on over the past month–and what we’ve learned about our own creative processes. (And you’re invited to create, too!)
Children’s author Tara will walk you through the steps she took to draft a new picture book, from inspiration, to notes, to first draft, to revision.
Rorey will be sharing their multimedia sketchbook created over the course of this residency as a way to explore establishing a regular creative practice, breaking down perfectionism, and valuing the process over product.
How can ripping apart The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson result in a book-length manuscript of poems? Kathleen will explain how she uses books-as-objects as writing prompts and read poems created by this procedure.
We invite the audience to tap into their own creativity by making multimedia collages with us. Adults and kids are welcome.
