Introduction to Creative Writing: Building a Practice

Tuesday, October 12, 2021 7:00pm - 8:00pm ET

Have you always wanted to get more out of reading poetry but the whole thing seems a bit intimidating? Do you find poetry difficult and obscure, a kind of frustrating exercise?

Join author, poet, and professor Heather Sellers in the Tombolo bookstore courtyard, or virtually through Zoom, for a conversation about how to get on speaking terms with poetry and why we need poems in our daily lives. Sellers will offer four simple strategies for approaching poems—even difficult ones—and will guide the audience in practice readings. Poems will unfold before your eyes. You’ll leave this workshop with confidence and a few fine new friends: poems

This event is free and open to the public. Please indicate if you will be attending this event in person or virtually.
