When: Tuesday, December 5, 2017 6:30 – 9:00pm
Where: SWG Office (100- 1150 8th Avenue)
Cost: Free for SWG members or $25 for non-members.
Participants will workshop their poems in a group setting. Focus will be on finding the way to make changes that improve the poem: how to let go of what is on the page to find what really works for each participant’s poem. Discussions will take place about word choice, line breaks, metaphors, images, sound and sense. Each poet will submit one poem, to a maximum of two pages when registering. Deadline for registration is Friday, November 24, 2017.
Participation will be limited to ten poets, so please register in advance here.
For more information, or to submit your poem contact Oin Nicholson, SWG Program Coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org
