Poetry Workshop with Risa Mykland
November 22 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Join us for a Poetry workshop lead by Risa Mykland!
This is a free workshop with an opportunity to tip Risa for their time.
Risa Mykland (she/they) will be leading a workshop theming around writing about a simple personal experience and using it to illustrate a much larger story from your life.
There will be an opportunity in the workshop to individually listen to a song (preferably one you know really well), so if you want to decide on that song before the workshop feel free to. You will also have time to choose it during the workshop. Come prepared with some way to take words down (ex. notebook + pen, phone notes app, laptop document), optionally a song, and your wonderful self.
Risa is a poet and self-proclaimed special occasion, currently based in Portland, OR. Find her work and upcoming features at @precisespice on Instagram, or at Risa Kate Poetry on Facebook. When not doing poetry you can find her thinking about poetry.
