In this hands-on poetry-writing workshop, award-winning published poet Judith Roche will offer her extensive experiences reading, writing, and teaching poetry. Participants will learn to express the “feel” of their natural surroundings – whether they are the lush farms of the Palouse or the evergreen forests of the Olympic Peninsula – and learn the building blocks for successful poetry writing.
