Fort Morgan, CO 2/25/2021. Morgan Community College’s Center for Arts and Community Enrichment (CACE) is offering a virtual writer’s workshop with Amy Irvine on March 4 from 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM. The two-hour workshop will be offered through Zoom. The Zoom link can be found by visiting the MCC website at www.morgancc.edu/irvine.
Amy Irvine is a sixth-generation Utahn, writer, and longtime public lands advocate. Her memoir, Trespass: Living at the Edge of the Promised Land, received the Orion Magazine Book Award and the Colorado Book Award. Irving is the recipient of the Ellen Meloy Desert Writers Award and a teaching fellowship for the Mountainview Low-Residency MFA program at Southern New Hampshire University, where she currently teaches fiction and nonfiction.
During the pandemic, Irvine co-wrote, with Pam Houston, “Air Mail: Letters of Politics, Pandemics & Place,” which was released in Fall 2020. Irvine’s work “Seeing Red” appeared in the Red Rock Testimony, an anthology of three generations of writers who treasure Utah’s public lands, which was instrumental in compelling President Barack Obama to establish the Bears Ears National Monument in southern Utah. Irvine currently resides in southwest Colorado.
This workshop will help writers learn how to strengthen their writing skills by putting emotions into words. Throughout the workshop, Ms. Irvine will share readings from her own award-winning writings. “The workshop with Amy promises to benefit all of us who often look for just the right words to describe our feelings about our passions,” said Suzanna Spears, CACE Coordinator. “We hope you ‘Zoom’ in with us and participate in a truly interactive event.”
