Taking Risks: A Poetry Workshop with John Murillo

April 18, 2010 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

This is a workshop about discovery, finding the poem you didn’t know you set out to write. The workshop leader will bring exercises designed to break writers from usual, pedestrian, habits of language, to risk, and to surprise themselves. For writers at all levels of experience.

To register, send a check for $25 made out to “Sarah Browning” to Split This Rock, 1112 16th Street, NW, Suite 600, Washington, DC 20036. Scholarships available. Please contact Sarah at for more info.

John Murillo is the current Jay C. and Ruth Halls Poetry Fellow at the Wisconsin Institute for Creative Writing. A graduate of New York University’s MFA program in creative writing, he has also received fellowships from Cave Canem, the New York Times, and the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts. He is a two-time Larry Neal Writers Award winner, a former instructor with DCWritersCorps, and the author of the poetry collection, Up Jump the Boogie.
