Youth Workshop: Hopes/Fears/Feathers: The Art of the Notebook and the Bird in Your Yard

Thursday, November 12, 2020
4:00 - 6:00 p.m.
For grades 9-12.

Free: pre-registration required, donations accepted

In this workshop we’ll identify and then banish fears, generate new work on the page and examine ways the writer’s notebook can help to focus our attention, capture stories and make sense during unsettled times. We’ll look at poems by Claudia Rankine and Emily Dickinson and watch New York birder Christian Cooper nerd out on birds. Bring a notebook, a pen and your fledgling hopes. Grades 9-12. Instructor: Laura Moulton
