Poetry Exploration for Beginners

Conference Workshop
Friday
1:30pm

In this hands-on workshop for beginning poets, poet Patricia Young will use exercises to get participants engaged and writing.  We will try different approaches to loosen up and break down everyday thought processes, thereby opening into the intuitive, animated language of poetry. The goal of the workshop is for participants to take away tools with which to work when writing alone, tools that will help them play with sense and countersense, while at the same time harnessing their stories and drawing on the compost of their lives.
