Writers Night Out April 17, 2024 Place as a Source of Inspiration

How do the places where we live, work and love define us? And how can they inspire us?

If you’re wondering, you’re invited to the

Cape Cod Writers Center’s Writers Night Out

on Zoom, April 17 at 7:00 PM


What makes your personhood?  For most of us, the answer has a lot to do with place: where you’re from, where you are. The daily routines, the well-worn tracks. The places where you eat and drink, and love and dream. The places where you’re reminded of your dreams. Live your life in one place for long enough and the boundary between person and place starts to become unclear. Who are you, if you’re not also the playground where you push your child on the swings?  Who are you, if you’re not also the place where you met your love?

This workshop delves into the complexity of our personal places, and help us understand how the world around us can be an endless source for poetic inspiration and meaning.Sam Cha
