Paulann Petersen Downstream: Writing with the Current

Join Paulann Petersen in a writing workshop dedicated to creation of new work.  Using notable poems as springboards, we'll turn ourselves loose in the river of words, letting language carry us along in its current, generating considerable new work as we go. The goal is to have each participant leave the workshop with an outpouring of new material ready to be fashioned into poems. All levels of experience are welcome.

Cost: $60 [One-day session with an hour break for lunch]
