November 16, 2019 @ 11:00 am – 3:00 pm America/Los Angeles Timezone
Hood River

When: November 16, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. (bring a sack lunch, and dress for an optional walk in the countryside during lunch break)

Where: upper Hood River (Parkdale), Oregon, at the home of Leah Stenson off the Fruit Loop scenic drive

Why: Competent craftspeople can build great things because they know their tools and have lots of practice using them. The same holds true for poets. In this workshop, you’ll see some of these tools in action, and you’ll have opportunities to practice using them, expanding your poetic possibilities.

Who: People who like to write poems, ages 16 and up. Lynn Otto believes people should leave a writing workshop with a better understanding of their work and a new (or newly polished) tool in their writer’s toolkit. She holds an MFA in creative writing/poetry from Portland State University, was a 2015/16 resident associate at the National Humanities Center in North Carolina, and has given readings and workshops in the U.S., Canada, and France. Her work has been published in Iron Horse Literary Review, Raleigh Review, Sequestrum, Slipstream, and other journals. Her book Real Daughter won a Unicorn Press First Book Prize.
