BETWEEN THE LINES:

Poems rise from external as well as internal events. The Pandemic of 2020 has given poets the opportunity to explore how outward events influence our writing, taking us to our deepest part of ourselves, the part where poetry lives.

 

In this 4-week, Zoom Workshop beginning Wednesday, March 3rd from 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm, we will explore how this ordeal can bring forth poems that are rich with understanding and beauty.

 

We will read Emily Dickinson, Audre Lorde, W. H. Auden, and William B. Yeats to learn how these great poets explored their own experience in order to intensify their words.

 

We will write in form and in open verse; each participant can plan on writing two or more poems during the course of the workshop.  

 

The workshop will be offered via Zoom on March 3, 10, 17 & 24 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The maximum for this class is 12 participants.  A minimum of 6 participants is needed to run the workshop.

The fee for this Workshop is $180.

CREATIVE NON-FICTION:

Linda Lowen will present the workshop, CREATIVE NON-FICTION: THE HERMIT CRAB ESSAY on Thursday, April 1, 2021 from Noon - 1:30 pm. 

 

Imagine telling your nonfiction story through an unexpected form: recipes, receipts, rejection letters, an accident report, a prescription label. This is the hermit crab essay -- creative writing using an unexpected structure to shape story.

 

It takes its name from the hermit crab: born without a hard exterior and therefore soft and unprotected, compelled to find a shell or other container to survive.

 

We'll read examples online to understand how it works, then you'll try your hand at writing essays/stories experimenting with different containers.

 

If you prefer reading from a book instead of a website, the anthology "The Shell Game: Writers Play With Borrowed Forms" by Kim Adrian is recommended.

 

The workshop will be offered via Zoom on April 1, 8, 15 & 22 Noon - 1:30 pm

The maximum for this class is 12 participants.  A minimum of 6 participants is needed to run the workshop.

The fee for this Workshop is $180.
