I AM A TOWN: Poetry Project with Spokane Poet Laureate, Laura Read

When: Tue., May 17, 6-8 p.m. and Tue., May 24, 6-8 p.m. 2016

Over the course of a pair of two-hour workshops (though the first session, on May 17, will have already passed by the time you’re reading this), anyone who considers Spokane their home is invited to pen a line or two for a citywide collaborative poetry project. Led by Spokane Poet Laureate Laura Read, “I Am a Town” asks participants to create poems based on specific places in Spokane that are be tied to a personal memory. After workshopping the poems and getting feedback from area writers, poems are presented during a community reading, with selections gathered and published in the “I Am a Town” poetry anthology.
