We often talk about workshops as if they’re the answer to all of our writing woes. But what if the answer was simply just a quiet space to write? In the following interview, I talk with poet and Writespace founder Elizabeth White-Olsen about how workshop and workspace converge to form Writespace, Houston’s newest literary organization.
Elizabeth White–Olsen is the founder and director of Writespace. An alum of Texas State University’s Creative Writing program, Elizabeth has taught college writing, creative writing workshops, and writing for children and young adults with Houston-based Inprint. Her poems and articles have appeared in various journals and publications. Most recently, she was named a finalist for Hunger Mountain’s Katherine Paterson Prize for Young Adult and Children’s Writing, and her debut poetry collection, Given Words, will be published this fall.
