Writers Writing – Poetry Workshop: Fall into Form

September 17 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Explore form in poetry with local author Irene Cooper.

This is an in-person program. Registration is required.

It’s often said, the poem must find its form – but how does that work, exactly? Join Irene Cooper in exploring how form can help generate a poem, as well as be a tool for revision. We’ll read some poems and get a start on some of our own.

Irene Cooper is the author of the novel Found, finalist for the Next Generation Indie Book Awards, Committal, poet-friendly spy-fy about family, & spare change, finalist for the Stafford/Hall Award for poetry. Her writings appear in Denver Quarterly, The Feminist Wire, The Rumpus, streetcake, Witness, & elsewhere. Irene supports AIC-directed creative writing at a regional prison, teaches in the MFA program at OSU-Cascades, is co-founder and instructor for The Forge online creative writing program, & currently serves as an editor for Airlie Press. Irene lives with her people & Maggie in Oregon. irenecooperwrites.com
