I write poetry and there is this difficult process when it comes to editing the poems you develop a relationship with. Some advice from people who have been there and done that is always a great way to make it through the editing process.

A Poetry Revision Workshop will be held at Full Circle Book Co-op Saturday from 4:00 pm till 6:00 pm.

From the Facebook event post:

You spent National Poetry Month (April) working on new material or pouring over your old poems. Now, it’s time to take apart a couple of your best (or worst!) pieces and make them better.

In this writing & revision workshop, creative writing instructor and poet Marcella Prokop will help you revise work and create something new.

In this 2-hour workshop we’ll do the following:
• Revise a poem of your own
• Give and receive feedback from others on said poem, before and after revision
• Create new work (not just whatever comes of revision)
Please bring the following:
• 2 printed copies of one poem you would like to revise
• Something to take notes on (notebook and pen or laptop, tablet, etc.
• A willingness to try new things and hear feedback from others

$10 - Pay upon arrival, May 4 - 4pm.
