Thursday, September 28, 2023
6:30 PM to 8:00 PM
Play with language to make your writing come alive.

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

From a craft point of view, poetry brings a lot to the table; concision, great language, momentum. A whole tool shed of writing techniques. Join Irene Cooper for a poetry workshop that will stock your kitbag with ways to make your writing - poetry or prose - come alive.
