Poet Laureate Armin Tolentino to lead poetry workshop.

Thanks to generous grants from Clatsop County Cultural Coalition and the Oregon Community Foundation, The Writer's Guild is able to offer free tuition to this poetry workshop for Guild members From Blank to Draft: Making Poems from Scratch to be held May 13 from 10 a.m. until noon. To register, go to the Guild website at http://www.thewritersguild.org (non-members pay a reduced workshop fee of $25). Need-based scholarships are available.

In this generative poetry workshop led by Armin Tolentino, they will explore, experiment, and play with various poetry techniques, especially sound and metaphor, to turn a blank page into the first draft of a new poem. Attend this virtual workshop from the comfort of your home, via Zoom. Log-in credentials will be provided to attendees via email.

Armin Tolentino is currently serving as the Poet Laureate of Clark County. He earned his MFA at Rutgers University in Newark. He is the author of We Meant to Bring It Home Alive (Alternating Current Press, 2019), and his poetry has appeared in Hyphen Magazine, Arsenic Lobster, The Raven Chronicles, and elsewhere.
