Plate Tectonics: Building Richer Poems through Shifts and Layers with Lauren Camp via Zoom

Sunday, January 30, 2022
12:30 pm - 2:30 pm


Description

Sometimes a poem you’ve been working on just isn’t getting where you want it to go. You might need a seismic shift, or you might simply need to plant a new seed in what you thought was hardened ground. A poem can often be made deeper and more resonant with time and a few techniques. This two-hour craft class will help you integrate and overlap approaches that will help the poem evolve. Come prepared to work (or really play!) with new ideas and directions. Open to writers at all levels.

Class will be held via Zoom and is limited to 12 students. Scholarship information will be released in November 2021. Tickets are $124. Please register at:
