The Driftless Writing Center is delighted to launch the month of April by hosting a workshop led by literary magazine editor and writer Kimberly Lee. Her workshop—titled “Writing Parenthood”—aims to help participants mine their parenting experiences for writing inspiration while they celebrate the roles they play in other’s lives.


This will be a generative workshop, perfect for all skill levels, and will include imaginative prompts, short readings, a discussion of craft, and other exercises that will serve as catalysts for creativity. Participants will learn fresh perspectives and new approaches for developing material on this rich topic, with the option of sharing their work and receiving encouraging feedback. Join us for the opportunity to engage in community with other parent-writers during this motivating session.


Kimberly Lee left the practice of law some years ago to focus on motherhood, community work, and creative pursuits. A graduate of Stanford University and UC Davis School of Law, she worked as a public defender in Los Angeles. Kimberly is a SoulCollage®, Journal to the Self®, and Amherst Writers and Artists facilitator, and a teaching artist with The Loft Literary Center, Hugo House, and San Diego Writers Ink.
