Where do poems come from? Come explore free writing, revision and collaboration in this accessible and enjoyable poetry writing workshop with bilingual poet Logan Phillips. The session will focus on generating new writing in a positive and supportive environment, inspired and informed by the work of the many amazing writers represented in the “A Portrait of Poetry” exhibit. There will be two writing sessions: 1:00 to 2:15pm and 2:30 to 3:45pm. All ages and experience levels welcome. Folks can stay for both or just come for one.
