    “Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes,” said Walt Whitman. If we do indeed contain multitudes, how do we find them? Where do they hang out? What do they sound like? This interactive workshop, led by Samn Stockwell, will begin with prompts to locate another voice, and end with creating poems that use a dialog between your voice and your alter ego. Participants will have the opportunity to write and read aloud their poems, but will not offer critique. Adults over 18, please.

    What is poetic form and why might we use it? Sonnets, haikus and villanelles are just a few of the hundreds of poetic forms that some writers use to add structure, rhythm and musicality to their poems. Form may seem intimidating, but it can be a way to find freedom, innovation and playfulness with our writing.

All levels of experience are welcome! This free workshop is offered in partnership with Poem City.
