Join 2014 Washington State Poet Laureate Elizabeth Austen for a free, hands-on poetry workshop designed to engage participants’ imaginations, life histories and sense of empathy through language.
The class includes close reading of a few contemporary poems, then using one as a model for writing our own first draft. No previous writing experience needed, and all are welcome. Maximum 20 participants.
Austen is the author of a collection, "Every Dress a Decision" (Blue Begonia Press, 2011), and two chapbooks, "The Girl Who Goes Alone" (Floating Bridge Press, 2010) and "Where Currents Meet" (Toadlily Press, 2010).
