Reframing Experience in Poetry and Prose: Acts of Reclaiming and Resistance

Wednesday, July 26, 2017, 7 – 8:30 PM

Sip Coffeehouse and Artisanal Café, 2815 Jewett Avenue, Highland, IN


“Weaving Words: A Braided Essay Workshop,” which will be presented at the Steel Pen Creative Writers’ Conference, was born of a collaborative project in which three writers considered the following questions:  How does perspective affect personal power and voice?  How can reframing experience in writing serve as an act of resistance? How can it allow readers to see subjects through “new eyes”?  Please join “Weaving Words” presenter and Highland Poet Laureate Janine Harrison for a discussion in which we define “reframing experience” and examine its applications in poetry and prose writing.
