Person to Person: Gaining Perspective
How many ways can you widen your focus? How can you find new stories and perspectives to tell? In this generative workshop, we’ll explore the idea of character through a number of lenses you won’t expect—sometimes celebrating ordinary concerns, sometimes finding incredible wisdom outside of ourselves. Understanding is all around us. During this course, we will engage with poems that will get you thinking about craft in new ways.
Saturday | June 10 | 12-3pm Eastern | $120 ($96 for Members)
All are welcome, space is limited. A limited number of need-based scholarships are available. Please email email@example.com with any questions.
