Poetry Workshop: Breathing Life into Our Writing

August 6, 2022 @ EST 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


In this generative workshop, we’ll explore the power of images in contemporary writing. Guided by discussions of craft and examples from notable poems and essays, writers in this workshop will gain tools to sharpen sensory details in their writing.
