Twyla M. Hansen

Twyla will use readings of her own and others’ writing, along with guided writing exercises, to create an interactive and supportive workshop.


Playing Around with Words: Writing from the Plains is a flexible program consisting of a reading and discussion for a wide variety of audiences, a writing workshop for beginning and seasoned writers, or a combination of both. Twyla M. Hansen will read selections of her and others’ writing to show how the Great Plains has shaped their poems and stories of place and connections with the natural world. The workshop includes a combination of readings and guided writing exercises for participants to generate their own poems or short prose. The programs are audience/ participant-focused, interactive, and will allow time for discussion. For middle school through adult.
