Longtime Michigan Writers member, leader and presence Holly Wren Spaulding relocated to Massachusetts, but she’s back (although temporarily) in July!
And she’s bringing back one of our long in-demand workshops, her Poetry Boot Camp, for a necessarily limited run.
Wednesdays, 6-8 pm, July 10, 17, 24
at THE BOX
425 Boardman, Traverse City, MI
Our theme and focus for this three week session is the poem’s meaning. The poem as meaning. What are we writing about? (And why?) Is the significance communicated? How do we handle the urge (and pitfalls) of abstractions? What can we do instead? We’ll look at examples of poems whose meanings are offered in a variety of interesting ways, then write some of our own. Let’s harness our capacity to make meaning with language pattern, form. Cost for three weeks: $100. Space is limited. Please reserve your seat by emailing me at [email protected] as soon as possible.
