Free Generative Writing Workshop for November: Cate Dicharry

Nov 19th 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Public Space One (downstairs in The Wesley Center) - 120 North Dubuque Street, Iowa City, Iowa


Sponsored by Iowa City Poetry and Prompt Press.

Now in its fourth inspiring year, the Free Generative Writing Workshop is Iowa City's only monthly writing workshop that brings together adult writers of all levels to have their imaginations sparked by our area's most talented writers and teachers, at absolutely no cost. The goal is to create a supportive environment where participants can generate new writing and meet others interested in the same. Each month a different talented writer-teacher from our area will invite us to write from an original prompt -- and then compose along beside us as we explore where that prompt leads. After writing, we'll have the option to share what we've created and receive feedback.

This month's workshop leader: Cate Dicharry

Cate Dicharry received her BA in Political Science from Lewis & Clark College in Portland, OR, and her MFA in Creative Writing from UC Riverside’s low-residency program. Her work has appeared in Electric Literature, Literary Hub, The Nervous Breakdown, Role/Reboot and other publications. Her debut novel, The Fine Art of Fucking Up, was published by Unnamed Press in April 2015. Cate taught English at Dalian Nationalities University in Dalian China, and worked at the University of Iowa School of Art and Art History before taking on her current role of Youth Programs Coordinator at the University of Iowa International Writing Program.
