WRITE WHERE YOU ARE Workshop Series
There you are, pen in hand, paper or computer in front of you, all good intentions on fire. How long do you sit, before you press pen to paper, finger to keys? How many Facebook peeks, dishes washed, to do lists made before the first sentence gets scratched out? This series of Monday evening workshops will help you get started on the “getting started blues” with writing prompts, ideas for sequence poems that will keep you going, and lots and lots of writing to build your mental muscles. We will look at some essentials of writing: imagery, metaphor, syntax, cadence, line length, using some model poems to inspire and guide. Finally, we will look at ways to revise and refine the drafts we write in class and at home. Barbara Pelman is a teacher and writer with over thirty years’ experience. She has conducted poetry workshops in her home and in schools and is an active participant in the Victoria poetry community. She has two books, “One Stone” (Ekstasis 2005) and “Borrowed Rooms” (Ronsdale Press 2008) and a number of poems in literary journals. She has received awards for her poetry, including last year’s first prize with the Federation of BC Writers Literary Writes contest.
