Join us Thursday, October 28, 2021 from 6:30-8:00pm for a poetry workshop on the “Illumination Poem” with professor and writer Lauren M. Davis.

The illumination poem is one which focuses—in great detail—on one event, memory, moment, or visual that the writer experienced and includes a written realization in response to the chosen theme.

Attendees will receive instruction on how to define, recognize, and write an “Illumination Poem” through a short lecture, and the reading and explication of published poems in this form. Attendees will then be given time to write and mimic the “Illumination Poem” style.

The workshop will end with the option to share what one wrote and/or what they experienced during writing time. To participate, please bring writing materials and a tangible object which will represent the event, memory, moment, or visual you wish to write about during this workshop.

Pre-registration required by 11:59pm on Sunday, October 24, 2021. Workshop is limited to 15 attendees; ages 15+. $35/person workshop fee due in advance to reserve your spot. Go to Eventbrite o purchase your ticket.
