It’s me again with one more presenter for you to check out. If you haven’t already registered for the upcoming Pamlico Writer’s 7th Annual Writers’ Conference, April 5th & 6th at the Turnage Theatre, Washington, NC, you need to get it done or you’ll miss it. And believe me, you don’t want to do that.
Here’s today’s workshop presenter for you to consider.
ABOUT THIS SESSION: Connecting with our Authentic Selves―Poetic Strategies for Self-Liberation with Robin Greene
Writing well requires a deep connection with our authentic emotional selves, but in our busy daily lives, tapping into that connection is often a challenge. In this 75-minute workshop, Robin Greene will offer poetic strategies designed to help poets connect to their authentic selves and to write without the self-judgment. Robin will discuss the poetic line, the power of specific images, and how ideas can be linked through sound. Intended to liberate both poets and non-poets alike, this workshop will include writing with prompts and sharing in an atmosphere free of taboo and judgment.
Not just for poets!
