Poetry As Memoir Workshop

Date of Event: 
May 12, 2018 - 10:00am

http://lfla.org/event/poetry-as-memoir/

Join poet Steven Reigns as he guides participants throughout the tricky and tough terrain of poetry writing as memoir. Learn how to excavate past experiences and transform them into condensed, well-crafted, concise poetry. Expect a supportive environment to explore autobiographical poetry and to do some in-class writing. While poetry can sometimes be enshrouded in mystery, elitism, or rigid rules, this program will offer a break from all that. This seminar is ideal for both experienced poets and those who have never written a poem before.  This is a free program that will be held at the Woodland Hills Library from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm. Space is limited, so please respond early. For more information, please contact Sharon Padua, Director of Major and Planned Gifts, at sharonpadua@lfla.org or 213.292.6268.
