Writing for History and Culture – A free virtual poetry workshop with Indigo Moor

Join Dominican University’s MFA in Creative Writing Program for a free virtual writing workshop

Wednesday, April 7, 6-8 pm PST

Guest Speaker:  Indigo Moor

Poet Laureate Emeritus of Sacramento, Indigo Moor’s fourth book of poetry Everybody’s Jonesin’ for Something, took second place in the University of Nebraska Press’ Backwater Prize. Jonesin’—a multi-genre work consisting of poetry, short fiction, memoir pieces, stage plays—will be published in spring 2021.

Through the Stonecutter’s Window, won Northwestern University Press’s Cave Canem prize. His first and third books, Tap-Root and In the Room of Thirsts & Hungers, were both parts of Main Street Rag’s Editor’s Select Poetry Series.

Indigo is part of the visiting faculty for Dominican’s MFA program, teaching poetry and short fiction. His stage play, Live! at the Excelsior, was a finalist for the Images Theatre Playwright Award. The subsequent screenplay was optioned as a full-length film.
