We’re very pleased to welcome poet Julia McConnell to host the next installment of the Ralph Ellison Creative Writing Workshops, meeting Thursday, July 19 at 6:30 PM at the Ralph Ellison Library (please note the deviation from our usual schedule of the second Thursday of the month). McConnell has been a dynamic presence in the Oklahoma poetry scene for years now, and her 2016 chapbook Against the Blue is available from Finishing Line Press. There will be a lot to look forward to with her session “Potential Space: Poetry, Process, and the Power of Play” and the unexpected possibilities it will open up for our writing practices. As always, all writers of high-school age and older are welcome, and attendance is free.

the Red Earth MFA Program at OCU, & SOP.
