Ellen Kort at The Clearing

Wisconsin poet, Ellen Kort, will teach a one-day workshop – A Poetry Worthshop – at The Clearing on Saturday, October 11. In this workshop, participants will become part of a writing circle and explore a variety of exercises that will encourage them to get creative energy flowing and to welcome the basic instinct of the deeper self, the poet that lives within. The workshop is for writers and poets of all levels. The price is $90 and includes a catered lunch.
