Workshop Overview

Join us at Sitka for a springtime exploration of poetry and wild association. Together, we will read and talk about poems, explore the possibilities of engaging with the natural world through writing, and generate our own creative work on the page. By the end of the workshop, you will have new material for your poems and essays, inspiring examples of published work, and strategies for writing. The class is free and open to the public. No experience necessary! All are welcome. Please bring writing materials (paper, pen, laptop, etc.) and a raincoat, as we’ll spend some time writing outside.

This free workshop is taught by one of our current writing residents as a way of inviting our community to learn more about our residents and our residency program. Register today to reserve your spot in this class.

This workshop is supported in part by a grant from the Oregon Cultural Trust, investing in Oregon’s arts, humanities and heritage, and the Lincoln County Cultural Coalition.
