“Penn will read a scene from her plays to serve as inspiration for your own writing, whether as dialogue or as poetry or prose, whatever form it may take.
We will work with memory, sound, dreams, images and character development to conjure evocative new waysof entering your writing. Perhaps a memoir will emerge; perhaps a history: be open to the surprise of possibility.
For more information on Penn’s work, see www.mytown.ca/pennkemp.
