Northbrook Writes: Letting Ghosts into Your Writing with Jacob Saenz

1:00 pm

What ghosts, literally or metaphorically, haunt the place you come from? What do they look like? What do they wear? Do they smell? The places that we come from all have their ghosts that help to define that place. In this workshop, award-winning poet Jacob Saenz will discuss how to connect poems to the places we come from and their ghosts.
