Free Writing Workshop with Beth Robinson

October 04, 2019

Oklahoma author Beth Robinson will lead and inspire writers of all ages in this free workshop at the Chisholm Trail Heritage Center in Duncan. Robinson conducted the 2018 workshop and many participants said they would enjoy another chance to attend her writing sessions.
The workshop begins at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 6. Students who are considering entering the Heritage Center’s second annual Cowboy Youth Poetry Contest this year are encouraged to attend this free workshop. Deadline for entries in the student contest are Nov. 1.

It is recommended participants arrive about 1:15 p.m. The Center does not open until 1 p.m. Robinson, an award-winning writer, will create engaging dialogue and offer many writing exercises for participants during the two-hour workshop.

Participants will have hands-on opportunity to explore the museum in at least one writing exercise.

Robinson teaches writing, including poetry, at Oklahoma State University in Oklahoma City. She taught in the English Department at Oklahoma City University for nine years, and at Northern Oklahoma College, Rose State College, the University of Oklahoma Continuing Education program, Moore-Norman Technical Center, and the OCU Red Dirt MFA program.

On the Oklahoma Arts Council Artist-in-Residence roster since 1998, she presents workshops and enjoys creating with writers of all ages across the state.

She holds a B.A. in journalism/professional writing and an M.A. in English/Creative Writing. Robinson’s book, “Poetry Unbound” written with women incarcerated at Mabel Bassett Correctional Center, was a finalist for the Oklahoma Book Award in 2014. She is the mother of four amazing humans, three dogs, and a box turtle.
