Tim Seibles, author of One Turn Around the Sun and Fast Animal will be conducting a workshop called “Twerk or Waltz/Hawk or Canary: Tone and Its Operations” from August 6-11, 2017 at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, 24 Pearl St, Provincetown, Massachusetts 02657.
It is not uncommon for poets to become handcuffed to one particular tone of voice, which limits the emotive range of their work. This can constrain the imagination and replace surprise with predictability. In this workshop, we will read and write a variety of persona poems as an antidote to such monotony. An essential part of this will involve a close look at the ways in which imagery and diction affect the mood of a poem.
Tickets are available.
The Etruscan Press and its authors actively participate in readings, education workshops, conferences, book fairs, and more.
