DON’T WRITE ABOUT ME!  Oftentimes we are most inspired by people who warn us not to write about them. The brilliant poet Yesenia Montilla calls this the unwilling muse.  In part one of this generative writing workshop created by award winning poet Peggy Robles-Alvarado we will examine people in our lives who warn us never to center them in our writing. We will explore the duality of silence and find ways to engage with what needs to be said and written despite the discomfort. 

Peggy Robles-Alvarado is a Dominican and Puerto Rican Jerome Hill Foundation Fellow in Literature, a two-time Pushcart Prize nominee, and an Atticus Review Poetry Contest winner. She’s also a BRIO award winner (2014) with fellowships from CantoMundo, Desert Nights Rising Stars, The Frost Place, Home School, VONA, Nalac Leadership Institute, and Communitas America. With advanced degrees in education and an MFA in Performance Studies, this three-time International Latino Book Award winner authored Conversations With My Skin (2011), and Homage To The Warrior Women (2012). Through Robleswrites Productions Inc., she created (2021), and The Abuela Stories Project (2016). Her work’s been featured on HBO Habla Women, The Dodge Poetry Festival, Lincoln Center, and The Smithsonian Institute.
