Creative Writing Workshop: “Poetry in Action: Writing as a Tool for Social Justice”

October 6, 2017 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.

In this workshop, students will examine the power of poetry to express, convince and engage. The role of voice, sound, rhythm, and visual arrangement is as important as vocabulary! Attendees will discover that poetry's tools sharpen attention, so each poem becomes a vital sign - an extension of one's heart and thoughts put into action, shared with the world.

Kathryn Jospé, the workshop presenter, is a former teacher of French and a poet. She has published books of poetry. She leads two weekly appreciation classes, and offers courses at Writers and Books. Since 1998, she has been a docent at the Memorial Art Gallery, and enjoys presenting lectures on "Ekphrastics" guiding people to see how art and word invite the imagination.
