AWP Conference Panel: Byte by Byte: Teaching Creative Writing Online

Room 200 H&I, Level 2
Saturday, April 11, 2015
3:00 pm to 4:15 pm

Five writers—who teach online in a public university, a community college AFA, an arts nonprofit, and in private BFA and MFA low-residency programs—offer a candid and guided tour of the online creative writing classroom. Stops on the circuit: cleaning out the correspondence course feel; using technology for web-based fine arts studios and readers’ salons; maintaining trust, establishing community, setting boundaries; and nourishing creativity and improvisation. Ample audience engagement.

Moderator: Cass Dalglish writes fiction and prose poetry and studies Reiki energy practice. Published books include Nin, Sweetgrass (Minnesota Book Award finalist), and Humming the Blues, a jazz poetics interpretation of Enheduanna’s “Song to Inanna.” She is director of Augsburg College’s MFA program.

Wendy Call is author of No Word for Welcome, co-editor of the anthology Telling True Stories: A Nonfiction Writers’ Guide, and translator of Mexican poetry. She teaches in Goddard College’s low-residency BFA in Writing, at Seattle’s Richard Hugo House, and through many community venues.

Athena Kildegaard is the author of three books of poetry: Rare Momentum, Bodies of Light (a Minnesota Book Award finalist), and Cloves & Honey. She teaches at the University of Minnesota, Morris.

Kathryn Kysar is the author of two books of poetry, Dark Lake and Pretend the World, and she edited Riding Shotgun: Women Write About Their Mothers. A previous AWP board member, she chairs the creative writing program at Anoka-Ramsey Community College in Minneapolis.

LouAnn Shepard Muhm is a poet and teacher from northern Minnesota. She has published in a variety of journals and anthologies, and her full-length poetry collection was a finalist for the Midwest Book Award for Poetry. Muhm has taught online for the Loft Literary Center, Minneapolis, since 2011.

POETRY SLAM
February 13, 2014
7 pm 
American Legion, Downtown Bemidji.

Come and hear some great music, some great poetry and the least-slammy poet on the planet participating in a slam (me). I’m assured this slam is open to the quiet lyric. There is American-Idol-style judging for cash prizes, I’m told. Should be fun!
