About the event
Gregory Orr says we are each born with a natural inclination to write in one of four temperaments, which he identifies as Story, Structure, Music, and Imagination. In this seven-session workshop we will examine which of these temperaments come most naturally as your style and experiment with techniques to deepen, as well as vary and broaden that instinctive style.
Open to all poets who want to explore a new approaches to developing their natural skills and writers in other genres who wish to give poetry a try. This workshop will offer crafttalks, discussion generative prompts and sharing of work. Sessions are led by three experienced poets, Marion Starling Boyer, Anita Skeen, and Carol V. Davis, and held on Thursdays via Zoom from 7:00–8:30 p.m. EST.
