Create your own 150-blurb with help from writer Ellen Santasiero.
Use this template

Whether we are writing a poem, an essay, a short story, or a book-length manuscript, at some point we need to figure out what our piece is truly about. In this presentation, Ellen Santasiero guides writers through the process of creating a concise 150-word blurb that can help them sharpen or shift the focus of their work. For a book-length manuscript, this short piece can become the book's back cover blurb. Bring a partially completed piece or just an idea for a future piece.

The only thing Ellen Santasiero likes better than making essays, memoirs, collages, plays, fictions, and safe spaces for learning is making them with others. Her work has appeared in The Stay Project, The Sun, 7x7la, and High Desert Journal, among others. She teaches literature and writing at OSU-Cascades in Bend. Find her at
