FREE Saturday Seminars on 2/9

Hey guys! I just wanted to let you know about an exciting opportunity this weekend. We will be offering two FREE Saturday seminars. Here's the info:

Poetry and Practicality 9:00 am -noon
with David Harrity

This workshop will examine ways in which a writer, specifically a poet, can get practical and develop systems to aid in the formation of better pieces. Using William Stafford’s poetry and writings about craft and vocation as a lens, we’ll take a look at how organization and consistency can inform the processes and methods by which we create. The focus of the lecture will be on exercise, production, revision, and technique. This workshop could be valuable for people writing in other genres.


Writing with Others noon-2:30 pm

Curious about Writing Practice? Need a writing group to call your own? Through writing exercises and an informal time to mix and meet , you’ll have the opportunity to discover the benefits of writing and reading with others and maybe even build a writing group to call your own. This workshop is for the simply curious, and particularly for those familiar with books such as Natalie Goldberg’s Writing Down the Bones or Pat Schneider’s Writing Alone and With Others but who haven’t experienced the power that occurs when writing in a group. Led by author Lynn Pruett and Carnegie Center instructor Gail Koehler.

Feel free to sign up online or give us a call (859.254.4175).

We hope you can join us!
