Home Is Where The Poem Is Workshop:
Attendees will be lead through some creative writing and performance exercises. By exploring and utilizing the imagery, smells and things that come to mind when we think of home, attendees will craft poems of their own. This workshop will serve as a dedication to the various places we have lived and called home. We will discuss voice, presentation, and writing to clearly express an idea. Students will be challenged to step outside of their everyday use of language.
