Join BCP for a workshop exploring the art of lying in poetry, facilitated by Tacoma poet and educator Michael Haeflinger. We will look at instances of hyperbole and interpretation, but also at examples of flat-out making stuff up in service of a great poetic Truth. Our workshop will look at poems by Wisława Szymborska, Ulrich Berkes, Nikki Giovanni, and Jim Harrison, and make space to write a draft of a poem that examines notions of truth and fiction. The workshop will be held on May 20, 2021, from 6:00 – 7:15 PM (PST), via Zoom.
BONUS: Participants will receive a FREE copy of Haeflinger’s poetry collection, Low Static Rage, upon workshop registration!
