Rowan Ricardo Phillips Workshop
This year the Sharon Springs Literary Festival, like many, had to go on-line. I was lucky enough to get a spot in a small workshop with Rowan Ricardo Phillips. To , I read some of his works and biographical information. I wasn't sure if it was the right workshop for me because his style sounded so different than mine, but I thought, "At least I will learn something." Boy, was I right! I learned a ton about workshopping, teaching, noticing, writing. He gave some great advice. I think my favorite piece of advice was this: "Start it hot!" He was so knowledgeable, and thoughtful when he crafted suggestions for each of the participants. He was spot on with the parts we were struggling with. And he was well-spoken and well-versed in the craft. He knew stuff, lots of stuff! I worked on the poem I read at the Poetry Foundation yesterday. It is better for it! Thank you Sharon Springs Literary Festival and Rowan Phillips!
