6:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Instructor: Brenda Shaughnessy
In this workshop you will read poems (to fill up on wonder and beauty and weirdness and resilience) workshop poems, (to re-see ourselves and hear each other), and generate poems (to open up to the new brilliant truth in us.) This class is for experienced poets. To apply for this class, please e-mail three poems in a single document by October 15, 2019 to Susan Moore at susan@literary- arts.org. Work e-mailed as the manuscript submission will be shared among registered students and discussed in this three- hour workshop.
