Enjoy a free creative writing workshop with Harpers Ferry National Historical Park's fall 2022 Artist-in-Residence Nancy Cook. Participants will investigate the complex and sometimes conflicting storylines that made Harpers Ferry nationally significant, including John Brown’s Raid, the Civil War, the Niagara Movement, Storer College, and the creation of the national park. Participants will use their exploration to create braided poems and fragmented prose. Both beginning and experienced writers are welcome.
