[ARCHIVED] Library to Host Two Writing Workshops in November

Library

Mitchell Public Library will host two writing workshops with South Dakota authors during the month of November. Presentations will take place in the Mitchell Public Library community room.

At 6:00 P.M. Monday, Nov. 8, Patrick Hicks will present his workshop, “Writing Fiction, Writing Poetry.” This workshop helps participants understand the writing life, hone their own craft, and learn more about how the power of words can shape our daily lives. Hicks is an acclaimed author and poet of over ten books and is the Writer-in-Residence at Augustana University in Sioux Falls.

At 6:30 P.M. Tuesday, Nov. 16, Jim Reese will present his workshop, “Get Published Now.” This workshop is a hybrid writing workshop where participants spend time generating ideas and discussing real methods on how to get published in today's market. It features an informal conversation with Reese, an award-winning working writer/editor/publisher discussing craft, publishing and the writing life. It is an opportunity for students, faculty and community members to learn about publishing and to meet directly with an editor and publisher. Reese also shares his secrets—writing from the gut—and how he gets prisoners and complete strangers to tell all. He is Associate Professor of English and Director of the Great Plains Writers’ Tour at Mount Marty University. Reese has several works of poetry and prose published.

These workshops are made possible through a grant from the South Dakota Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. These workshops are free to the public. Masks are encouraged for those planning to attend the events.
