Words on a Page: Writing Craft Workshop for Teens series with d. ellis phelps

Through Whose Eyes: Point-of-View Poems
Explore the world of words while looking through the eyes of the bullfrog, a mountain, your childhood swing, the neighborhood taqueria. What do you think your pillow would say if it could speak?  In this writing craft workshop, we’ll look at a few writing samples, noticing what makes them work, write a group-poem and then try writing a poem of our own from the point of view of our chosen subject. Finally, we’ll share our work, giving and receiving soft-feedback.
