Featured poet Eloisa Amezcua will lead participants through a one hour generative workshop on sound as memory.

About this Event

Join us on Friday, October 30th, 2020 from 4:00pm-5:00pm CDT for a generative workshop with featured reader Eloisa Amezcua:

How can sound and diction make personal histories and narratives tangible to the reader? In this workshop we will explore our own lexicons, how they're shaped by the world around us, and how to best use them to create emotional texture in our poems.

**

Space is limited to 20 participants.

The workshop will take place virtually via Zoom with Otter Live Captions. An ASL interpreter will be present. Access copies of workshop materials will be made available via Google Docs.

Register for the virtual workshop by clicking on the "Registration" button on the Eventbrite page, donating any amount you can, and entering the required fields. You will receive an email with the Zoom information.

Suggested donation of $5.
