More Info Here

We kick off 2023 with an energetic generative poetry workshop featuring Columbus poet Louise Robertson!

About the Workshop
The workshop will be presented in person and virtually. Titled “Getting to a Great First Draft and Beyond,” the session is about generating new poems as well as working with first drafts and stalled works in progress. Louise Robertson will present prompts and ways to get more from your process as well as information on how to craft prompts for yourself and others. Additionally, Robertson will present on editing techniques and lead a discussion on this critical part of being a writer. Participants should bring what they need to write.
