In this workshop for all ages, Montreal-area poet Tara McGowan-Ross takes emerging writers on a trip through the process that she developed to write her document-poem STRIKE MOTION —a resistance poem layered directly on top of the actual document her university department used to go on strike in 2015. By injecting humour, imagery, beauty, and metaphor into the documents that shape our lives, we have an endless supply of writing material—and the building blocks for a truer archive for our brief and precious life on Earth.
**This workshop will follow the November 5, 2021 Atwater Poetry Project public reading by Tara McGowan-Ross and Ashley Obscura, 7:00-8:00 pm in the Atwater Library Auditorium.
This workshop is FREE but space is limited. To register: firstname.lastname@example.org.
