Tim McNulty Workshop Description: Images as Windows (Saturday, March 24, 1-3P at SPLAB)

In our workshop we’ll explore the power of images to convey meaning, nuance and mood in our poems.  We’re review some poems that rely on images, and we’ll jot some images in our notebooks recollected from the past few days.  If time permits, we may venture outdoors to gather a few fresh notes from the neighborhood.  Then we’ll try an exercise or two that will coax our rough notes into a poem.  If everyone is willing, we’ll share some of our works-in-progress.  No preparation is necessary, but a pen and notebook are handy – and a willingness to open ourselves to the world outside ourselves.

Please be aware that Cascadia Gold Passes are now extremely limited and they may be sold out by March 24th. Guarantee a spot by registering now. The badges are VERY cool, and get you into every reading and workshop. PLUS, they are the ONLY way to get into the exclusive morning sessions, and the best way to get into this workshop. Tim will also be part of the keynote reading Saturday night at 7:30 at SPLAB. Details and the complete schedule at www.splab.org/cascadia.
