Megin Jiménez Master Class Recording

Venezuelan-American poet and short story author Megin Jiménez gave a special master class for us on 1 March 2020 at Boekhandel van Rossum in Amsterdam. You can listen to a recording of the class below, or it is also available as a podcast from the services listed and from our own feed.

The class focussed on craft in Megin’s prose poetry collection Mongrel Tongue, which won the 1913 Press Prize for First Books. She received her MFA from the prestigious New School in New York. Her poems, stories and essays have appeared in the Best American Poetry Blog, the Kenyon Review, Barrelhouse, NOO Journal, Barrow Street, Denver Quarterly, LIT, Tarpaulin Sky, and other journals. Megin also works as a professional translator and teaches the Collective’s creative writing courses in The Hague.

Unfortunately due to a technical hiccup, we only have a recording of the second half of the class where we discussed the writing and publishing process. Topics covered included:

  • Stocking the well of inspiration
  • Getting yourself unstuck
  • Dealing with self-doubt
  • Coming up with titles
  • Finding the right place to submit your work
  • Keeping writing fun & much more

Mongrel Tongue was published by 1913 Press in 2019. You can get your copy direct from the publisherSmall Press Distribution or Amazon.
