upcoming courses

I am happy to announce that I'll be teaching two poetry writing workshops in Eagle River, WI in September. Sponsored by Many Ways of Peace and The Warehouse Four Season Center for the Arts, these classes are geared toward beginning and intermediate/advanced poetry writers, respectively. Come join!

The Art of Poetry
Instructor: Emily K. Bright
Time: Tuesday, September 10th,      9 a.m. to noon
Location: 217 S. Main Street, Eagle River WI

Are you intrigued by poetry? Do you write poetry for pleasure or for sharing with others? This low-pressure, hands-on workshop is open to everyone who is interested in further exploring the art of writing poetry. We’ll look closely at the work of several contemporary poets, including Wisconsin Poet Laureate Max Garland, and consider not only what they say but how they said it. Bring pen and paper, because we’ll be doing writing exercises designed to stimulate the imagination. You’ll leave the workshop with plenty of ideas for writing new poems of your own. Coffee provided.
Cost: $35 Call 715.480.4697 or email to register.

Finding Your Voice
Instructor: Emily K. Bright
Time: Saturday, September 28th,  9 a.m. to noon
Location: 217 S. Main Street., Eagle River WI

This class is for writers who find themselves falling back on the same old phrasing or forms in their poetry and are looking to stretch their voices.  In this hands-on workshop, we’ll read wonderful poems by a range of contemporary artists, taking time to discuss each poem and analyze how it works—their line breaks, their sounds and images, the way they address the audience, etc.  We’ll borrow their techniques and try them out for ourselves in free write exercises. Feel free to bring poems you are “stuck” on. You’ll leave this class with ideas for new poems and more tools in your writing toolbox to help you say what you want to say in new ways. Coffee provided.
Cost: $35 Call 715.480.4697 or email to register.
