|Workshop with Claire Blotter|
THE JOURNAL AS SOURCE OF PROSE, POETRY & PERFORMANCE
Whether you're a beginning or experienced writer, journal writing offers a satisfying way to express personal feelings and experiences. And though it's largely considered a private practice, this uninhibited writing provides a rich source of raw material that can be revised and transformed into polished and publishable forms. In this supportive workshop we will silence our inner critics and free write in journals inspired by prompts, guided observations and visualizations that will evoke the powerful imagery and memories of the subconscious mind.
Three Sessions: Mon., Wed. & Fri., July 10, 12 & 14, 1:10-3pm
College of Marin, Kentfield Academic Center, Rm. 236.

|Poetry Writing Master Class with Tom Centolella|
"Poetry is language at its most distilled and most powerful." - Rita Dove
Poets attempt to say the unsayable—an ambition that should never be "all work, no play." In this lively workshop, a master poet will play Virgil to your Dante, guiding the way to your unique vision and voice. Bring your works-in-progress, or the optional weekly assignment, for encouraging, in-depth feedback. To jumpstart inspiration, each meeting will begin with the discussion of a notable poem, occasionally followed by a fun in-class exercise—all supplemented by examinations into poetic forms (ancient to contemporary), the art of revision, and creative tactics for extracting the hidden gold of your imagination. For all poets, wherever you are on the journey.
