with Dawn Thompson, Portland Women Writers
Dates: 8 Tuesday evenings, September 27 – November 15
Location: SE Portland (near SE Hawthorne)
We think we are not poets. We are carpenters, teachers, bakers, maybe even writers, but a poet? We forget that not only was poetry our first language - Goo GooGaaGaaUp Now Yes YesHeee- but that poetry is as natural to us as breathing. We were born to make music and to paint pictures with our words. Our hearts and our world are in dire need of poetry. Poetry frees us. It changes how we engage with life and deepens all of our writing. In this workshop, we'll sculpt word combinations in new ways to capture an ordinary moment, an extraordinary story. We'll experiment together with this wonderful gift we call language. No previous poetry experience necessary.
