Missouri Humanities St. Louis Veterans Writing Workshop


A workshop facilitated by Kasey Perkins centered on what a unique metaphor is, how to get inspired, and how you can work one into a piece of creative non-fiction food writing.

Perkins brought excerpts from authors like Flannery O’Connor and Sam Andersen, along with reading from her own book, When The Dead Get Mail.
