Cooper Street Workshop: Poetry as History

As an artistic practice, poetry is a powerful form of personal expression as well as a method for revealing the silenced voices, hidden histories, and forgotten narratives that shape our lives. Participants in this workshop will explore poems and techniques to help incorporate cultural artifacts in their writing. They will also create poems using ekphrastic, erasure, free-writing, and more. Writers will leave the workshop with an expanded toolbox of craft techniques and several pages of new writing. The tools used are "methods of imagination" applicable to any genre, so poets, essayists, and fiction writers of all levels are welcome. Learn more.

Admission: $60 general, $10 for Camden residents. Register to attend.
