On Saturday, March 14th, Paulann Petersen will be donating her services to Central Library (in downtown Portland) for another free poetry workshop.
It’s listed as a workshop for beginning writers, and beginners are -indeed -very welcome that afternoon. But since it’s a generative workshop (designed so that the participants will leave with a little trove of new work), it’s suitable to anyone who wants to spend a couple of hours writing in a supportive, congenial group.
Here’s the description of the workshop, and here’s the link if you want to register. Paulann will be using all new springboards (prompts) -no repeats from the workshop she did at Central last April.
ANYONE'S DOMAIN: A BASIC POETRY WRITING WORKSHOP
Poetry is not the domain of just a few. It’s as natural and accessible as heartbeat and breath. Writing poetry requires nothing more than a love of words and a willingness to let your pen move across a page, following language wherever it takes you. Join Paulann Petersen in an afternoon devoted to creating poems and talking about some of the basic elements of poetry. Beginners welcome.
Please pass this on to others who might be interested.
