Paulann Peterson Workshop--April 18--SILVERTON
Portland poet Paulann Petersen will lead a poetry writing workshop in Silverton on Saturday, April 18, the first day of the 2009 Silverton Poetry Festival. Petersen says: "Using notable poems as springboards, we'll turn ourselves loose in the river of words, letting language carry us along in its current. Our goal will be to have each participant leave the workshop with a little trove of new material. All levels of experience welcome." The workshop will be held 1:30-4:30 p.m. at the Frank Lloyd Wright Gordon House, 879 W. Main St. in Silverton. The fee is $30. Register by sending a check to the Silverton Poetry Association, 303 Coolidge St., Silverton, OR 97381.
