Natalie Kimbell will be leading our July monthly meeting with a writing workshop she likes to call “Tapping the Keg.” This will be a spirited workshop where participants will work as individuals and play as a group to generate a brew of ideas, finding perhaps a fictional starter for a fictional draft, the froth of a poem, or the suds of memory to take home to craft something of their own. Natalie is a UTC graduate and has 40 years experience as a teacher of English, theater, and creative writing. She lives in Sequatchie County, Tennessee, is a mother of two, and a grandmother of four. Her poetry is published in The 2019 Chattanooga Writers’ Guild Anthology, The 2020 Garfield Lake Review, The 2020 Chattanooga Writers’ Guild Anthology, the 2021 Appalachian Writers Anthology, Dorothy Allison Version ,and The American Diversity Report.
