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! If you haven’t signed up for conference, do it today!
