Wednesdays, April 4 – 25, 4 PM – 6 PM, ACA Downtown: Harris House

Photographs speak to us. It is why we collect them and create albums for them – and it is why the greatest poets have written masterful poems about them. This poetry workshop invites writers, photographers, album-collectors, and artists of all levels and ages – to discover how to craft poems that “listen” and “respond” to the world around us. Participants will bring to each session a photo or an image that will serve as a prompt for us to try our hands at poetic forms: ode, sonnet, haiku, and even the “tweet-poem”.  Don’t miss this chance to experiment and grow with Florida Poet Laureate, M.B. McLatchey.

FREE and open to the public

Veterans and families welcome!
