LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION, POETRY!
Join Rikki Santer in exploring ways that poetry and film can be in conversation with each other. In this workshop, Santer will present film clips and poems to demonstrate how the movies have influenced and inspired poets throughout the last century. She will also provide prompts that will guide participants to “read” a movie with more complexity as well as create poems in response to the cinema.
Saturday March 10, noon to 3:00, St. John’s Episcopal Church, 323 Wick Ave. $15.
