Every poem is part of an ongoing cultural conversation spanning generations and geographies. Join the conversation at a 90-minute writing workshop on response poems with Kingston Poet Laureate Jason Heroux. Bring a cherished one-page poem (printed or digital, not your own work) and a notepad or laptop. After a discussion of techniques and methods, you'll each write a poem in response to the one you brought.
Free to emerging and practising poets aged 14 and older but seating is limited. To avoid disappointment please register in advance, online at events.kfpl.ca or by phone at (613) 549-8888. Thursday, April 11, at Central at 2 p.m. Registration opens at 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 30. (A repeat of this workshop will be offered on Thursday, April 25, at Isabel Turner at 7 p.m.; registration for that session will open at 9 a.m. on Saturday, April 13.)
