Learn From and Write with Chloe Honum

On Saturday, August 11,  The Jack Kerouac Writers-in-Residence Project of Orlando partners with MAD about Words to offer you the opportunity to learn from and write with Chloe Honum, the current writer-in-residence at Kerouac House.

Writing and Discovery

The poet Yusef Komunyakaa said, “Don’t write what you know. Write what you are are willing to discover.” In this workshop, you will take Komunyakaa’s advice to heart. You will write both poetry and nonfiction. Guided by specific writing exercises, each writer will explore his or her passions, memories, and mysteries.

Chloe Honum was born in Santa Monica, California, and was raised in Auckland, New Zealand. Her poems have appeared in many journals and anthologies, including The Paris Review, The Southern Review, and Poetry. Her awards include a Ruth Lilly Fellowship from the Poetry Foundation.
