Corvallis: Poetry of Place, and Handling Submissions with John Sibley Williams

November 25, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Poetry of Place, and Handling Submissions

Please join us on November 25th, from 6:30-8:30PM at our Willamette Writers on the River Chapter Meeting!

In the first part of the program, Williams will address poetry of place with a discussion of how natural and constructed landscapes affect our identities and shape our writing. This workshop will include the study of diverse poems that successfully employ place as a metaphor for the human condition. You can expect prompts and writing time followed by Q&A.

In the second part of the evening’s program, Williams will speak about handling submissions. Given the wealth of literary journals available to us, Williams will help us to craft a successful strategy to achieve those long-sought acceptances.
