Event description

Description

What are the essential elements that make up a poem? How much is required? How little is needed? We'll look at various takes on short form poetry and methods of compression to use in your writing.

Participants should bring a blanket to sit on, something to write on, something to write with, and an open mind. MoonLit will be in touch with you on the morning of the workshop with instructions on where to meet.

About the instructor: Dan Brady is the author of the poetry collection Strange Children (Publishing Genius, 2018), and two chapbooks, Cabin Fever / Fossil Record (Flying Guillotine Press) and Leroy Sequences (Horse Less Press). He is the poetry editor of Barrelhouse and lives in Arlington, Virginia with his wife and two kids. Learn more at danbrady.org.

Art in the Park is a summer workshop series run through MoonLit. The aim of this series is to creatively connect community through low-cost arts base programming in public spaces. Inspired by the vibrancy of DC and it's people and places, MoonLit hopes that Art in the Park will inspire creative minds of all ages and backgrounds.
