POETRY WORKSHOP WITH DAVID MEISCHEN
POETRY WORKSHOP with DAVID MEISCHEN: Responding to Art with Poems and Sketches
Friday, October 29, 10:00am - 12:30pm
Instructor: David Meischen
Location: 713 High Street - across the street from the gallery
Looking receptively at works of art can take us deeply into ourselves, into our own stories, into imagined narratives. Participants in this workshop will examine several pairings of art and poetry. We will browse among the stunning works at studio Comfort—sculpture, turned wood work, drawings, paintings, photographs, and more. The responses we write will include poems and/or fictional sketches and/or sketches drawn from personal experience. Poets, fiction writers, memoirists—all are welcome.
David Meischen has been teaching writing workshops for more than thirty-five years. Honored by a Pushcart Prize for a personal essay, he is the author of an award-winning poetry collection and more than twenty published short stories.
