Free Workshop: Forms & Features Descriptive Poetry
October 8, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm| Free
Join us for this adult workshop – all experience levels are welcome to a discussion and creative workshop moderated by Poetry Foundation Library staff member Maggie Queeney.
Together, we will explore description, a technique used in multiple fields to define, understand, and conjure the world. After discussing descriptive qualities and functions, participants will be guided through composing original descriptive poems in response to the Lurie Garden landscape.
Maggie Queeney holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Syracuse University. Her work has appeared in Web Conjunctions, Third Coast, and Meridian, among other publications. She currently serves as the Library Assistant at The Poetry Foundation.
