In the workshop, we will examine works by Emily Dickinson, Lucille Clifton, Rita Dove, and Natalie Diaz among others. After we’ve thoroughly examined and discussed each poem, participants will choose one poet’s style to imitate in a work of their own.
Please join FCC in celebrating Women’s History Month in March with this creative Poetry Workshop.
