Poetry Workshop: Reading Palms, Writing Poems

  • Third House Books & Coffee 113 North Main Street Gainesville, FL, 32601 United States (map)

Reading Palms, Writing Poems

In this short workshop, we will read some poems by poets who find inspiration in various forms of divination, then do some writing using palm reading as a creative stimulant. After that, participants are encouraged (though not obligated) to share their writing. We will informally discuss these new works and offer each other ideas about how to shape them into poems.

Seating is limited so reserve your spot ASAP. This workshop is free and open to the public!
