Writers Writing – Poetry Works for Every Writer
September 28 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Play with language to make your writing come alive.
This is an in-person program. Registration is required.
From a craft point of view, poetry brings a lot to the table; concision, great language, momentum. A whole tool shed of writing techniques. Join Irene Cooper for a poetry workshop that will stock your kitbag with ways to make your writing – poetry or prose – come alive.
