Using master storyteller John Steinbeck’s book,The Grapes of Wrath, as inspiration, Marea Gordette will offer exercises and photographs to spark our memories. Based on the devices used by Steinbeck, we’ll work on developing creative sentence structure, poetic elements, framing devices, dialogue, and effective scene plotting to make our own writing come alive. Writers of all levels are welcome to these supportive programs where we’ll share and gently critique our work. Passages from the book will be provided.
Marea Gordette has taught creative writing and memoir for many years and has won the Pushcart prize in poetry. Her book of poems,Freeze Tag, uses family interviews as the basis for personal poems. Marea is adept at writing both creative nonfiction and poetry
