Meet Morri Creech!

We welcome, Morri Creech, Pulitzer Prize finalist and South Carolina native, to our 2016 conference!
A little bit from Morri on writing:
“I’m definitely a seat-of-the-pants writer. I like to sit down with no idea about what form or subject the poem will take. I like the poem to tell me what it wants to do.”
“I write better in the evenings, when the duties of the day are behind me. I don’t need ideal surroundings. I write in the living room with my six year old and her friends playing around me. I write well in chaos.”
” Judas from “The Testament of Judas.” He pops up in dreams from time to time.” (When asked which character’s he’s dreamed about.)
“When I was young, I actually wanted to be a stand-up comic.”
“If I had it to do all over again, I would be a songwriter.”
“I have been moved to tears by Keats’ “Ode to a Nightingale” and, most recently, “Sublimaze” by Gjertrud Schnackenberg. William Trowbridge’s “Million Dollar Winners” and the King Kong poems by William Trowbridge are hilarious.”
We cannot wait to learn more! ┬áIf you haven’t signed up for conference, do it today!
