November 2020: Jump-starting Your Poems With Wonder

Sat, November 7 from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm PST
webinar (limited to 40 students)

Lony Haley-Nelson notes: “Wonder is valuable…because it leads us to learn and remember.” Using the language and vocabulary of myth, folklore, science, and natural history as inspiration for poems, this generative workshop will help you jump-start the blank page in front of you.
