Writing the Unexpected: Poetry Workshop
Saturdays, 10 am - Noon
March 2 - April 27 (class will not meet March 30)

The Newberry Library's resources will be a source for inspiration, information, conversation, and playfulness in this generative workshop. We will use visual art, historical texts, temporary exhibitions, and ephemera to listen, experiment with form, and create new work. Along the way we will attend to the craft of poetry, learning tricks and tips from published pieces. Our goal will be to establish a positive environment for critical feedback and community. Expect to leave the workshop with seven to ten new poems. Eight sessions, $190.

Valerie Wallace holds an M.F.A. in creative writing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and has taught workshops throughout Chicago. She is an editor with RHINO Poetry and the author of The Dictators' Guide to Good Housekeeping.
