In this workshop, we will explore ways to ignite the creative spark through meditation, use of music, and free-writing with prompts.
Each writer will share his or her writing, receive feedback from fellow participants, and do a short Q&A, in order to maximize one’s interaction with others. The result will be a portfolio of rough drafts in three genres: poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction.
Odilia Rivera-Santos is an Afro-Puerto Rican writer/poet/performer and educator born in Arecibo, Puerto Rico and raised in the Bronx. Her fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, in Spanish and English, have appeared in numerous print and online journals, and her first collection of poetry, Love When You Say Love, was published in 2014 by Editorial Trance. Rivera-Santos believes rhythm is the root of all great writing and finds music an infinite source of inspiration.
