"Your River Is Waiting is the workshop for people who’ve got the chops to write, but need guidance on where to bite down. Derrick Brown uses his wealth of experience, and soothing vocal stylings, to take you through a no-nonsense look at brainstorming, editing, crafting, and publishing poetry. With guests from different arenas of the writing world, he gives you all the juice you need to squeeze something fresh out of your own mind. I spent 10 years writing poetry that never saw the light of day, and after four weeks in this workshop I’d written five brand new poems and shared them widely. 10/10 would ride the river again."                                                                                                                                                     —Chris K.
