Skillshop: Poetry Dojo with Mark Anderson

  • INK Artspace @ Spark Center 1214 W Summit Pkwy Spokane, WA, 99201 United States

Thursdays, Sept. 17, 24, Oct. 1, and 15 @ 6:30-8pm (attend all sessions)

It's time to throw out the chalkboard for an interactive poetry skillshop! We'll start by learning how to write by memory, training ourselves to write lines that stick, digging deep to find what needs to be remembered. From there we'll launch our journey into the tools poets use to create powerful work. Poetry Dojo isn't a class, it's a training session! Each lesson will only comprise half or less of the class with the rest of the time dedicated to writing, editing, and individual feedback. 

$40. Limit 20 students. Register now.

ABOUT THE TEACHER, MARK ANDERSON
Half way up the South Hill of Spokane lives a curious creature. He has funny, brown fur on his head. He thinks too much about poetry. He looks at the sun when it hides behind the clouds, even though he knows it can burn his eyes if he isn't careful. One sunny day he was awarded the Ken Warfel Fellowship for poets who have made substantial contributions to their communities. On another day he co-founded Broken Mic. Now, he will be training others in the magic of performance poetry.
