POETRY WORKSHOP: Turning a Corner: Exploring and Creating Poems of Transition
June 2, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Draft new poems in response to the changes in your life
TURNING A CORNER: Exploring and Creating Poems of Transition with Angela Voras-Hills
Whether expected or not, transitions on any scale can challenge our beliefs, shift our perspectives, or alter our lives. As we return to a new version of “normal life” this summer, we’ll read and discuss poems that acknowledge, embrace, and grieve a variety of transitions. Through writing exercises and prompts, we’ll apply what we’ve discussed in order to draft new poems, hopefully awakening new responses to the transitions we’ve lived through and those that lie ahead.
This class will be presented online via Zoom. Tuition for the 90-minute workshop is $30. Write On members receive a 10% discount. To become a member and save 10%, please click here.
