Need ideas to help you start writing? Join us for a monthly pop-up workshop co-presented by Phoenix College and ASU's Piper Center for Creative Writing.

Each session includes a 30-minute mini-class and a writing prompt exploring some aspect of craft—setting, dialogue, character development, etc.—followed by focused writing time and the opportunity to read your work to the group.

This workshop will be hosted online as part of our virtual event series.
 

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
This month, instructor Flower Conroy discusses "My Heart's a Comet Caught Inside a Hummingbird: Mining Image to Carry Emotion."

From the instructor: "In the spirit of William Carlos Williams’ mantra of 'no ideas but in things,' poets will 'translate' a list of randomly chosen abstractions into personal, concrete images. Poets will then be guided to create a thirteen-line poem that will suggest the ghost of a sonnet and be left with a second image cluster for inspiration beyond this workspace."
