Oklahoma Arts Council presents Dr. Benjamin Myers Oklahoma Poet Laureate, 2016 – October 1, 2016 at 10:00 am at the Public Library of Enid and Garfield County, 120 West Maine, Enid, OK 73701. Dr. Myers will be reading and teaching poetry from your memories and there will be time to create some of your own.
The Enid Writers Club and the Enid Public Library will host the workshop called “Making Poetry from your Memories” and is suitable for anyone from high school through retirement.
Making Poetry from your Memories:
Everybody has a story to tell. This workshop will help you tell that story through poetry. Through a series of guided exercises, including instruction in poetic technique, participants will explore ways to compress their recollections into compelling, sharable poetry. Areas of exploration include the following: imagery, metaphor, diction, rhythm, line, and sound. Participants will have the opportunity to produce a poem during the workshop and to share it with the other participants.
Join us in celebrating the art of poetry and oh, and there might be cookies!
