In this workshop, we’ll discuss the idea of “found poetry,” look at a few examples, and use artifacts and texts from other sources as inspiration to create our own “found” poems. Join this workshop to jumpstart those creative juices, move past writer’s block, or as a catalyst for new inspiration. Participants will be inspired by using language in fresh ways and leave with a couple of new poems.
Class meets in person, Saturday, March 4, 1 – 2:30 pm.
