Wednesday, November 3, 1:00—3:00 PM
Join poet d. ellis phelps for another poetry-writing workshop: Attendees will explore writing samples from published works; be introduced to and discuss the use of poetic devices; write, using facilitator provided prompts and receive facilitator and peer-given feedback on the writing.
Tell Me Something Good: Use story, metaphor, or humor to elucidate the “how-to’s” of living. Whether it is a recipe or a list of do’s and don’ts; an extended metaphor or a simple life story; a thing you know very well or a mystery, writing will take you and your reader deep into the well of understanding. Join us for some writing fun as we craft poems that may tell “how to” be a grandmother, catch crickets, count stars, or be happy. What will we discover? Wouldn’t you like to know?
