Powerful Poetry Workshop with Pam Whitfield on Saturday Oct 1st 1 to 4 PM
Poetry packs a punch. Its brevity, compact language, and imagery give it unusual linguistic and visual power. How do we harness those qualities in our own writing?
Let Pam lead you in an afternoon of poetry: reading it, writing it, sharing it. We’ll play with writing exercises and explore techniques to make our poetry more powerful. Feedback is guaranteed, and the afternoon may end with an impromptu spoken word performance.
