Poetry Workshope- " The Powerful Pastiche: Learning from Great Women of Letters"

Presented by Firehouse Cultural Center at Firehouse Cultural Center, Ruskin FL

Mar 23
Poetry Workshope- " The Powerful Pastiche: Learning from Great Women of Letters"

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.

Lecturer Bio: John Davis Jr. is a seventh-generation Floridian whose poetry has been published in dozens of literary venues internationally. His poems have been repeatedly nominated for the Pushcart Prize and other laurels, and his books, Middle Class American Proverb (Negative Capability Press, 2014) and Hard Inheritance (Five Oaks Press, 2016) have also been critically acclaimed. He teaches English, Literature, and Creative Writing for colleges in the Tampa Bay Area, and resides in Riverview.
