Willamette Writers Corvallis Chapter Presents

Corvallis Willamette Writers Header

Poetry Reader, Writers, Editor, And? Bring All Your Hats

with Rachel Barton

This meeting is in-person only.

Join the Corvallis Chapter of Willamette Writers in the Oak Room at the Corvallis Community Center, 2601 NW Tyler Ave. from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM on Monday, October 23 for this fun, interactive workshop with local poet and writing coach Rachel Barton. This in-person-only meeting will be low-tech so bring your pencil and notebook. Participants will read a handful of published poems, select a prompt, and free-write. Then Barton will lead a foray into “editor head” with a ranking of three or four poems. She will wrap up with sharing and discussion.
