Saturday, September 14 | 1-3 pm
Writing workshop with Ellen Goldsmith
$30 to attend, cash or check day-of

Birds capture our interest, attention and imagination. What do we see in them and where do they take us? We’ll address this question from the perspectives of poetry and art. We’ll begin by exploring poems by accomplished poets that feature birds. Next we’ll spend time with Ann Craven’s Birds We Know. Prompts or springboards will suggest directions for writing a poem or a paragraph.

Workshop limited to 10 participants
