Message in a Bottle
Join award-winning poet Fran Bourassa for a 3-hour writing workshop! Participants will begin by reading an original poem to the class that they feel best represents their style, their voice, their message in a bottle. Using the guidelines for giving feedback provided, participants will offer each other constructive feedback on their work, and a discussion surrounding the craft of poetry will follow.
In the second portion of the workshop, take inspiration from the diverse artwork on display in ‘Discovery,’ Seymour Art Gallery’s juried exhibition for emerging artists, to create an original poem. Using free-writing exercises, participants will open up their creative voices by silencing their inner critics.
Anyone who wishes can share their poem during the open mic portion of ‘Poetry Meets Art,’ which takes place the following afternoon at 2 pm. Those who aren’t ready for the spotlight are encouraged to join the audience with appreciation.
Preparation for Workshop: After registering online, please email your original poem the be edited at the workshop to firstname.lastname@example.org
