Looking back: Feb. 4: PSSC workshop -- Fishing for Poems

Looking back at a recent winter workshop:

PSSC Writers' Group Workshop:
Fishing for Poems
Sat., Feb. 4 
10 a.m. to noon
Charleston Library Society
164 King St., Charleston
Instructor, Susan Laughter Meyers
Free for PSSC members, CLS members,
and CofC students; $15 for all others.

In this workshop let’s cast for poems, somewhat like throwing out a fishing line in first one spot and then another, knowing that sometimes we catch a fish, sometimes we don't. We're notfixed on the catch as much as we're determined to sit back and enjoy the process. If we dedicate ourselves to this time of generating something new--if we allow ourselves plenty of opportunities to let our imaginations loose, to experiment without judging our work—by the end of the workshop, we’ll each have several poem starts or drafts to take home for revision, as well as new strategies for filling our poetry pail.
