Description

Food has inspired poets throughout history. In this two-session workshop, we will explore the connection between food and poetry as we learn to hone our senses, create strong imagery, and engage our audience. We will delve into works that explore emotion, nature, and humanity through the food experience and write original material with the use of prompts, tastings, and discussions. This workshop is open to writers with all levels of experience.
