The Shirlington Poetry Workshops Begin Oct. 17th:

Guest Artist: Sarah Browning

Wednesday, October 17, 6:30 pm

Shirlington Library 4200 Campbell Ave, Shirlington, VA 703-228-6545 Arlington Library

Join the Shirlington Library staff and Guest Artist Sarah Browning for the inaugural meeting of the monthly poetry workshop. The Poetry workshops will meet the third Wednesday of each month. And will focus on a theme, which the participants may follow if they like. Guest Artists will join the workshops quarterly.

This month\’s workshop: History is what you learn around the dinner table: Writing poetry at the intersection of the personal and the political

All of our lives are shaped by social and historical forces, whether we’re aware of it or not. Our own family stories – our personal social history – can be a great source for poetry of the political imagination. We’ll look at a few poems by contemporary poets that explore this intersection of the personal and the political and then write our own. No experience necessary! Just come ready to write.

For more information, please contact Geoff Koury at 703-228-6545 or gkoury@arlingtonva.us
