North Dakota Humanities Council and the Friends of Prairie Museum (Rugby, ND) are partnering with the Long X Arts Foundation and the McKenzie County Library to bring a writing workshop to seniors in McKenzie County. Saturday, April 29th from 9am to 12pm at the McKenzie County Library. The workshop is free and designed for seniors (50+) but open to all ages.

Seniors Speak is a workshop and storytelling project designed for North Dakota senior citizens who are interested in writing their stories. Through the workshops, we aim to capture, gather, and share the rich and often untold stories of North Dakota residents.

Please bring yourself, your stories and writing materials (pen, pencil, paper).

The workshop facilitator is Debra Marquart. Marquart is the author of five books including Small Buried Things: Poems and The Horizontal World: Growing Up Wild in the Middle of Nowhere, which won the PEN USA Nonfiction Award and Elle Magazine’s “Elle Letters” Award. She directs the MFA Program in Creative Writing and Environment at Iowa State University and serves as the Senior Editor of Flyway: Journal of Writing & Environment. Contact: marquart@iastate.edu.
