Join poet and Canadian Writer-in-Residence Leah Horlick in this interactive workshop for Writers’ Guild of Alberta members. We’ll explore strategies for answering the question “When is a poem done?”—and map out some ways to get there. Leah will share from her own process and offer some of her pieces that have taken years to complete as examples.
Bring the poems you can’t quite seem to stop editing, that have sat ignored in your desk for years, or that don’t ever feel “good enough.” Let’s find out what “done” means to you, and get a little closer.
This event is free with registration to members of the Writers’ Guild of Alberta.
This is an in-person workshop without livestreaming capability. In solidarity with queer, sick, and disabled communities, Leah asks participants to seriously consider wearing a mask. Please be prepared to socially distance insofar as it is possible for the duration of this workshop. Please also refrain from wearing perfume/cologne so we can keep it a neutral, fragrance-free environment.
This workshop is introvert-friendly and mindful of the vulnerable nature of some of our most difficult poems. Writers will have the option to work independently or in small groups if they so choose. No group workshopping, sharing, or reading aloud will be required.
The Arusha Room is located on the first floor of Community Wise and is wheelchair accessible.
