A poetry workshop at Kerouac House with writer-in-residence Ryler Dustin
In this poetry workshop, we will draw inspiration from the Beats’ emphasis on uninhibited, explosively generative writing. Jack Kerouac famously wrote on a single, interrupted scroll of paper. We will draw upon examples and exercises that unlock the power of stream-of-consciousness, generating new work and arming us with the tools to break through writer’s block time and again.
RYLER DUSTIN is the current Writer-in-Residence at the Jack Kerouac House. His poetry appears in journals such as Iron Horse, New South, The Portland Review, The Bellingham Review, and in his book, Heavy Lead Birdsong, available from Write Bloody Publishing. He has led poetry workshops across the U.S. and recently presented on slam and Beat poetry at the International Walt Whitman Seminar in Munich. He earned his MFA in poetry from the University of Houston and currently lives in Lincoln, where he pursues a PhD and teaches writing courses.
