Between the Lines Poetry Writing Workshop with Kathleen Ellis

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until August 11, 2017

Gamble Education Center: Upstairs

In this week-long workshop with poet Kathleen Ellis we will explore connections between memory—truthful or fanciful—and history. How can language assuage or deepen our connections to the past? How do these events shape our values and world views, from our own identity to the plight of immigrants to climate change? Using current exhibits at the museum and local art galleries, photographs, historical events, and a range of poetic styles and techniques, we will jump-start new poems based on our experience and imagination. Open to intermediate and advanced poets and those who have taken at least two of Ellis’ previous workshops.
