Grub Street Poem Generator Workshop #1

12:00 - 1:30pm on Saturday, May 14 2011 in Green Land Cafe

One of Grub Street’s accomplished poetry instructors will lead festival attendees in innovative, fun and stimulating poetry exercises. These unique exercises have been used in Grub Street’s multi-week poetry courses, and generated numerous published poems. The goal is to complete 2-4 exercises in an hour, leaving time for attendees to share their work aloud if they wish. Instructors will give supportive feedback, and may also point out ways to make the poems better, helping writers avoid common mistakes. Any “critique” will be given in a gentle and encouraging way. Even if you are not a published or even practicing poet, this session will inspire you to want to create poems of your own.

You must pre-register for this event by adding it to your personal calendar. Extra seats will be offered to attendants at the door.
