Due to restrictions on our meeting rooms, this program has been postponed until July 17th.
April 3rd Tami Haaland will speak at First Fridays at noon on “Local Literary Culture.” As a poet raised on the Hi-Line and as a professor of creative writing, Haaland knows the benefit of bringing cultural activities to rural and urban environments. In this program, Haaland leads either a writing workshop or a discussion tailored to the needs of each community. From facilitating a discussion of short works by Montana authors to exploring multi-genre writing through prompts and activities, these presentations can inspire your group to new writing and reading frontiers. Included in these programs are practical conversations about the challenges of building and sustaining writing groups and literary programs, and innovative ways to succeed in cultivating local talent and creating a series of guest artists to nourish literary communities across the state.
