About the Event
What makes a home a home? What does home mean to you? In this workshop, poet Kimberly J Simms will help participants explore personal landscapes and write about the homes we love, past or present. Using photographs as writing prompts, Kimberly will guide participants through the creative process to generate a poem on the “theme” of home. Participants are invited to bring photographs of a landscape or home to inspire their writing.
