Developing Your Poetic Voice Using poems as examples and inspiration, this craft workshop led by poet, educator and editor Marianne Worthington focuses on generating, writing, and revising poems. Specifically, we’ll pay attention to musical arrangement, description, and voice in poems and practice refining what poet Ellen Bryant Voigt calls our “stylistic fingerprints” as poets. Award winning poet Marianne Worthington (Larger Bodies Than Mine Finishing Line Press, 2006) is the cofounder of Still: The Journal ( www.stilljournal.net) and editor of three Motif anthologies published by MotesBooks. Her workshop will be followed at 4 pm by a free poetry reading by contributors of the forthcoming anthology, Motif v3: Work, including Amber Whitley, Donna D. Vitucci, Jay McCoy, Katerina Stoykova-Klemer, Landra Lewis, Leatha Kendrick, Matthew Haughton, Mary Anne Reese, Pauletta Hansel, Roberta Schultz, Sherry Chandler, Sherry Stanforth and Marianne Worthington. Help us welcome all these fabulous out of town (and local) writers!
