National Writers Series Poetry Workshop
Students in grades 8-12 are invited to join us on Sunday, Jan. 30th for a Front Street Writers Poetry Workshop.
(Planned to be in person at the Traverse Area District Library Main Branch, Thirlby Room. If gathering restrictions change, the class will move to a virtual format and students will be sent log-in information.)
“Poetry is not only a dream and vision; it is the skeleton architecture of our lives.” —Audre Lorde
Dive into a 3-hour workshop on the art of poetry. Instructor and poet Ari Mokdad will walk students through different poetry styles, demonstrate techniques to strengthen their writing and add greater depth and meaning to their poetry, and give advice on further development or publication for aspiring writers. Students are encouraged to bring their own poetry to workshop with the group.
Please note, this workshop is open only to fully vaccinated participants.
Registration closes when the maximum number of students (15) register, or by January 28, 2022. A waitlist may be available. Registration is open to students throughout northern Michigan.
