Contemporary Takeover: Poetry Reading & Workshop with Writer in Residence- Ava Serra

December 20, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Poetry isn’t always sonnets and other strict forms. During this event, we will look at a short selection of pieces that explore less common structures and defy conventions outright. Poetry should be open to all, not restricted to a few ways of thinking.

This event will consist of a collective reading and breakdown of two (2) poems from trailblazing contemporaries, a short writing exercise, followed by a writing workshop. Please note that workshopping time will be limited. If you would like your poem considered for workshopping (they will be chosen at random), please email ava.j.serra@gmail.com with a piece that is no greater than two (2) pages in length. If you are unable to bring around 10-12 copies of your piece to the workshop, please indicate this in your email to Ava Serra.

Copies of the poems will be provided at the event. If you would like the pieces beforehand, please request them via an email to Ava Serra. There will also be a list of further reading for those interested. This list can be included in the email upon request.

Bringing something to write/mark with is highly recommended
