This workshop is designed for writers of all levels, from the established writer looking to take their work to the next level to the true novice simply intrigued by the notion of poetry, and everyone in between. Over the course of two and a half hours, we will (a) discuss a poem that illustrates with excellence some crucial writing tool we'd like for our own toolboxes, (b) use creative, guided practices to get writing in unexpected ways, and (c) look at poems by three people in the group. Open to writers in all genres and at all experience levels. Things to know: * You don't have to be a poet to participate! * You don't have to bring a poem of your own! * It's awesome.
