A writer’s life can be defined as inspiration, ideation, perspiration, creation, publication. This night is devoted to two of those facets – inspiration and perspiration. Priming the Pump will be a one hour writing workshop – five writing exercises that will get the creative juices flowing, followed by a fifteen minute writing period where you take one of those quick starts and work on it. A share will follow. Then we close out the evening with a poetry critique circle, bring a finished work, ten copies, for a round table discussion of what works and what may need a bit of attention about your poem. You are welcome to sit in without bringing a poem to share.
Faith Vicinanza will faciliate the writing program. Ms. Vicinanza is a widely published poet and has been facilitating writing programs for children and adults for over fifteen years.
As always, this was a great time, and lots of useful writing starts!
