Shore Thing Getaway

Treat yourself to a writing retreat at the shore. Down the block from Atlantic City's famous beach and boardwalk, this affordable workshop will energize and inspire you. Head home with sand between your toes, a few new pieces of writing and the glow that comes from spending the day with an encouraging community of writers.

Narrative Poetry
“We tell ourselves stories in order to live” — Joan Didion
 
In this Master Class, we discuss and practice strategies for writing and revising poems that tell our stories and, ideally, surprise us in the process. We read sample poems to see what they teach us about narrative control, clarity, productive ambiguity, precision, lineation, and the use of literary tropes to create memorable narrative poems. Then we produce and discuss new drafts. This is a generative workshop, and writers at all levels of experience and skill are welcome.
 
Date: Saturday, April 28, 2018
Time: 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Location: Project Write Now, 25 Bridge Ave., Suite 130, Red Bank
Instructor: Mihaela Moscaliuc
