VWC Free February Writing Workshop – Karen Houle

Sun, Feb 23 2020, 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Guelph poet and philosopher, Karen Houle, leads a free workshop on Building Poems From What’s Already Written, Sunday February 23, 2:00 PM, at the downtown location of the Guelph Public Library, as part of Vocamus Writers Community's Free February Writing Workshops each Sunday in February.

An increasingly common practice in contemporary North American poetry is utilizing ‘found’ or ‘source’ texts when composing poetry. Learn about the right way to reference these ‘gleaned’ words and phrases and discover the benefits in using other texts when writing poetry.

Karen Houle is the author of Ballast, During, and The Grand River Watershed: A Folk Ecology, which was nominated for a Governor General’s Award in Poetry. She teaches in the Philosophy department at the University of Guelph.
