Inspiration Everywhere: How Little Epiphanies Lead Us to New Writing”
The topic of this workshop is inspiration. What is inspiration and how can we find it in everyday life? Through generative exercises, I will engage participants in ways of seeing that will help generate creative writing. This workshop is for anyone who wishes to start writing poems or lyric prose for seasoned writers who are looking for a pick me up in their creative processes. Participants should expect to write and share at least two poems/ lyrical pieces written during the workshop.

Allison Joseph lives in Carbondale, Illinois, where she is on the faculty at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. Her most recent collections of poems are Lexicon (Red Hen Press, 2021, winner of the Best Poetry Book of 2021 Award from Poetry by the Sea: A Global Conference), Any Proper Weave (Kelsay Books, 2022), Speak and Spell (Glass Lyre Press, 2022), and Confessions of a Barefaced Woman (Red Hen Press, 2018). Confessions of a Barefaced Woman won the 2019 Feathered Quill Book Award and was a finalist for the 2019 NAACP Image Award. She was named Illinois Author of the Year for 2022 by the Illinois Association of Teachers of English. Her poems have appeared in the New York Times and in the Best American Poetry Series. Her next book, Dwelling, will be published by Red Hen in 2025. She is the widow of beloved poet and editor Jon Tribble.
