Writers in the Community Poetry Workshop Week 3

Monday, March 27, 2023 - 5:30pm to 6:45pm

Auntie's bookstore is happy to host a poetry workshop organized and run by C.G. Dahlin. This is a free three week workshop. Each session will be independent, anyone would benefit from attending just one, however, those that attend all three will greatly benefit from how each of these subjects play together. Every session, attendees will walk out with at least one new written work.

The workshop will take place on the Mezzanine at Auntie's Bookstore. If you have any inquires please contact cdahlin@ewu.edu.
These workshops are free and open to the public.

When we write, it’s only natural that our work at times comes across as journaling or feels restricted to writing an experience or observation. However, if we instead employ our experiences to reach a profound statement, outwardly spoken or otherwise, our work suddenly is blessed by gravitas/significance. In this workshop, we’ll go through how the ancients used allegory as their primary poetic device in myth making and literature alike and ultimately how we can use their methods to source our next great poem.
