Gillis: Poetry Workshop with the Fresno Women's Reading Series

Event Type: Poetry/Open Mic
Age Group(s): adults
Date: 4/15/2017
Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Time: 3:00 PM
 This hour-long workshop focuses on generating: new ways of looking at poetry, excitement about the genre, and new poems (or ideas for poems) of your own. We'll discuss our relationships to poetry, what poetry can be, and how those beliefs might inform our approaches to our own work. As we explore our ideas about the genre, we'll look at published poems for inspiration, and examine elements of craft. Throughout the workshop, we'll use examples and exercises to develop our own ideas and write poems (or pre-poems). No workshop experience or previously-written poetry necessary; we would love to meet you wherever you are in your poetry journey.
