POETRY WRITING WORKSHOP Kim Dower: "For Mothers and Anyone Who’s Ever Had a Mother Figure in their Life" 5-6:30PM TUESDAY, APRIL 26
LOCATION: IN-PERSON: PHOENIX
This 90 minute poetry workshop is for poets and non-poets alike – for anyone who’d love to know how to plant the seeds for poems to grow.
From the instructor: "Our time together will provide an opportunity to mine our memories and experiences, our hearts and feelings and potentially awaken new, startling poems. We will explore the rich soil of our childhoods - the places, and emotions from our past and examine how memory can inform and affect our writing. After hearing a prompt, we will dive into 'fever writing' or 'automatic writing,' and witness the magic we create! With Mother’s Day coming up, we will hear prompts that will inspire us to write our own poems – to and about our mothers and mother figures, or just for gifts to ourselves! Bring nothing but a pad and your favorite pen!"
We're limiting attendance to allow for social distancing, so registration via Eventbrite is required for admission.

Cost: $30 per person. Includes admission to the workshop, one (1) copy of I Wore This Dress Today for You, Mom, and one (1) drink ticket.
Please have paper and pen or an electronic device to write on.
