Event Description:

Whether at the lip of a continent or at the limits of propriety, edges are jumping-off places—both unsettling and exhilarating. Perched on the edge of the lava flow that forms Cascade Head, buoyed by the place and by each other, we will write poetry and prose inspired by edges of all kinds. Prompts and discussions will be specific but open-ended, connecting each writer with ideas that are poised to fly. The two days will include instruction, in-class and solo writing time, discussion, optional sharing of drafts, and optional instructor conferences. You will emerge with new work and new perspective.
