Due to recent health concerns around public gatherings, The Commons and The Driftless Writing Center have chosen to POSTPONE this event. Thank you for your understanding.
Focusing on craft and form, we will explore how white space, caesuras, the em dash and elliptical poetry is used effectively by other poets, including C.D. Wright, Simon Ortiz, Allison Adelle Hedge Coke, Adrienne Rich, Jean Valentine, Claudia Rankine, Joan Naviyuk Kane, and Layli Long Soldier. Please bring one poem on any subject to edit during our time together.
Saturday, March 14 at 10:00 am – 12 noon
WHERE: The Commons Cafe Dining Room
COST: $35 per person (inquire about scholarship opportunities)
