Name: Exploring Voice: On the Page and at the Mic
Date: April 2, 2020
Time: 4:30 PM - 6:15 PM PDT
Event Description:
The Truckee Library is proud to support this "Exploring Voice" workshop led by Karen Terrey, MFA, of Tangled Roots Writing in celebration of National Poetry Month and to host Sierra Poetry Festival pop-up events in Truckee!

Exploring Voice: on the page and at the mic: What is “voice”? How do you capture your out-loud voice on the page? We will discuss ways to recognize your own strengths and originality, generate new writing through prompts inspired by poets featured at this year’s Sierra Poetry Festival coming up April 18th, as well as share tips and techniques for reading poems out loud at local open mics. We will create our own community of writers who can follow up this workshop by attending the Open Mic at Philosophy this same evening!

Workshop bonus: Become familiar with poetry by poets to be featured at the Sierra Poetry Festival in Nevada City, CA: Ellen Bass, Coleman Barks, and Lee Herrick. At the festival, you will have opportunities to hear and meet these poets!
