Take in a unique writing workshop coming to Williston and Watford City that features the opportunity to work with renowned North Dakota writer, Deb Marquart. A native of Napoleon, Debra Marquart is a professor of English at Iowa State University. A performance poet, Marquart is the author of two poetry collections: Everything's a Verb and From Sweetness. Her memoir, The Horizontal World: Growing Up Wild in the Middle of Nowhere, was published by Counterpoint Books in 2006. It received the "Elle Lettres" award from Elle Magazine and the 2007 PEN USA Creative Nonfiction Award.

"Our People. Our Places. Our Stories." Writing Workshops will be hosted:

February 3 & 17, 2015 at 6-8pm at the Pioneer Museum Of McKenzie County in Watford City, ND.

February 4 & 18, 2015 at 7-9pm on the 4th, 6-8pm & 8-10pm on the 18th at Books on Broadway in Williston, ND.

Have a story to tell, but not sure where to start? Already writing and want some techniques to bring out your best work? Join us and explore tips to further your writing practice. 

These hands-on workshops are designed for members of the community interested in honing their writing skills. Each event will include a discussion of the process of researching and writing about family and place, about the different approaches to writing the essay, and will include time to workshop with the authors. We ask that you come with a prepared piece of writing-it need not be long, though it shouldn't be too short. This workshop is intended for writers at every stage of development. 

All are welcome to come and participate or just sit back and listen. Attendees should bring a notebook and pen/pencil. This workshop is FREE and open to the public.

The writing workshops will be in conducted in two visits to each community. Participants must be able to attend both workshops. Register for the Watford City workshop here!
