Rachel Javellana Poem Writing Workshop @ CPL
Rachel Javellana Poem Writing Workshop
Date: Sat. November 21, 2009
Time: 2:30 pm
1962 W. 95th Street
About this event:
Rachel will lead a workshop where participants will experiment with the endless ways of writing their own 'how-to' poems, taking the reader through steps (how to do something) and/or moving through physical space (how to get somewhere). We will look at a variety of examples that deliver their message using the form of directions.
