Playing Deep: a Poetry Workshop with Elizabeth Philips
FREE Regina Workshop
When: April 6, 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Where: Ken Mitchell Library, Suite 100, 1150-8th Avenue, Regina
The truth is that poets have more fun - they get to play with word choice, line breaks, metaphor, simile, cadence and rhyme. Their poems may be lyrical or narrative, philosophical or meditative, playfully serious or seriously playful - but no matter the form or subject matter, poets take readers deep into language. Participants will workshop their poems in a group workshop. Focus will be on working the language of the metaphor, on finding the compression needed to make words, lines, and the poem itself as compelling as it can be.
