The Norman Arts Council partners with the Pioneer Library System for the forth-annual Writing Workshop, May 3, 2014. This year the NAC is pleased to announce that the Writing Workshop will be held in conjunction with StART Norman, amonth-long community arts initiative in Downtown Norman at the site of the Old Lumber Yard, 227 W. Main St., Norman.
“The NAC looks forward to this collaboration with the Pioneer Library System each year,” said Erinn Gavaghan, executive director of Norman Arts Council. “We are delighted to be able to offer this unique and free opportunity to the community. There are not many opportunities for creative writers like this and we are very excited about this year’s workshop program in particular!”
The workshop, lead by William Bernhardt and Nathan Brown, takes place within the site-specific art installation for StART Norman entitled Threshold: the promised land. Participants will have an opportunity to explore the exhibition and its themes throughout the day and use techniques learned to craft writings during the workshops.
“I look forward to this workshop every May,” Brown said. “It’s a bit like a family reunion by now, where we catch up on the comings, goings, and writings of each other over the last year. If you haven’t been, come on over… there’s room in the family.”
Following the workshop, StART Norman will host an Open Mic night where workshop participants and others from the community are invited to share their writings.
