The Language of Survival: Exploring Trauma in Fiction and Memoir

April 7th, 2018, 2:00-4:30 p.m.

The University of Tulsa’s Tyrrell Hall Auditorium

Sasha Martin, author of the memoir Life from Scratch: A Memoir of Food, Family, and Forgiveness, will host a free writing workshop entitled “The Language of Survival: Exploring Trauma in Fiction and Memoir” on Saturday, April 7th, from 2:00 to 4:30 p.m. in The University of Tulsa’s Tyrrell Hall Auditorium. Presented by Nimrod International Journal and Northeastern State University as part of the National Endowment for the Arts’ 2018 NEA Big Read program, “The Language of Survival” will discuss writing about trauma and survival in both fiction and memoir. Workshop topics will include strategies for getting personal experiences onto the page, tips for deciding whether to tell a story as fiction or memoir, and techniques to avoid oversimplifying life’s villains, real or imagined. Martin will also lead participants in writing exercises to get their ideas flowing. The event is free and open to the public.


Green Writing: Celebrating the Earth with Poetry

April 22nd, 2018, 1:00-3:00 p.m.

Tulsa Botanic Garden

Poets have always sought out nature as inspiration for their poems and as a place in which to write them. As a celebration of National Poetry Month, join Nimrod International Journal and the Tulsa Botanic Garden as we explore the connections of poetry and nature at Green Writing: Celebrating the Earth with Poetry.

Green Writing: Celebrating the Earth with Poetry will feature a day of poetry readings at the Tulsa Botanic Garden on Sunday, April 22nd from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. This special event will let you take in the beauty of spring as you explore the A.R. and Marylouise Tandy Floral Terraces and the Children’s Discovery Garden. Readers stationed throughout the Terraces will perform their favorite nature- and environmentally-inspired poetry, as well as work from the pages of Nimrod, and readers stationed in the Children’s Garden will perform kid-friendly nature poems about crawly worms, muddy puddles, shining rainbows, and more. You can also get your own creative juices flowing by adding a haiku to our haiku tree for the chance to win free passes to the Garden. A food truck will also be onsite with tasty treats and beverages for sale.

In the event of inclement weather, cancellation information will be posted on Nimrod’s Facebook and Twitter pages by 12:00 p.m. on the day of the event.

Garden admission is free for Garden members, $8 for ages 13+, and $4 for ages 3–12. Children 2 and under are free. Green Writing: Celebrating the Earth with Poetry is free with your admission to the Garden. For directions to the Garden and maps, visit .
