Crescent Dragonwagon Writing Workshop
WHAT: Start (or return to) writing in a 12-week, once-a-week small writing group with Crescent Dragonwagon. The group will open shortly in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and is limited to twelve participants. Low-key, high-energy, centered on writing process and practice, each session gives writers and would-be writers the insights, tools, approaches, practices and methods they need to grow their work to its individual next level.

Poem Framed


Photographing scenes
Sky, land, or people 
I frame in my view
One at a time.
I raise my camera
Study each frame,
As I focus on the
Story it will project,
To others who view
The finished product,
Will say, she captured
The moment.
