Exploring the Art of Show & Tell: Writing poems of nature and human nature

When we enter the natural world with a pen in our hands, there’s an invitation to notice not only what is happening all around us, but what is happening inside us. The practice of writing poems can a bridge between these two worlds. In this 2-hour playshop, we’ll read poems by some of the finest nature poets of our time that balance sensory detail (show) and emotional/intellectual observation and wonder (tell), we’ll talk about how they work, write poems of our own, discuss process, and have a chance for optional sharing.

About the series:

Join Middle Creek Publishing’s Zoom Literary Workshop Series – a celebration of literature, creativity, and community. As we strive to nurture and promote the voices of today’s writers, we’re also embarking on an exciting transition to become a nonprofit organization. This change will empower us to focus more on the quality of our work and extend our literary reach. Be part of this transformative journey by supporting our fundraising goal of $2,300. Your donation for this workshop/workshop series will not only support our work with the workshops, but help further our mission as well, helping us access new opportunities through grants and donations. Let’s come together to write the next chapter in the story of Middle Creek Publishing.

Each month, Middle Creek Publishing will offer a donation-based virtual writing workshop and reading showcasing the amazing authors of MCP and sharing more about our mission. This is a donation-based event, so please pay what you can (suggested donation of $25.00-$250.00). All proceeds will go to MCP featured readers and supporting our collective goal for MCP to move to nonprofit status.
