Topic: Writing Poetry, Finding Inspiration
Guest Speaker: Laura Keegan
In this workshop we will explore our own individual connections with our expression (writing) of poetry. Trying some new techniques, we’ll discover ways to find inspiration to open up our own writing world. We'll explore and challenge ourselves to discover new ways to write outside of the box that so many of us tend to put around ourselves.

Topic: Instagram Poetry
Guest Speaker: Cheryl Miller
We will take a look at Instapoetry. Is it accessible or simplistic, deeply emotional or banal, better left to greeting cards and dorm posters? You be the judge as we study works from Nayyirah and Sierra, Robert and Rupi, Tyler and Clementine – Instapoets who have used Instagram as a step toward best-sellers.
