Choosing Your Words *SOLD OUT*

September 28, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am


“Poems, novels, stories are built word by word,” says poet Lorna Crozier. That sounds simple, but what goes into our choosing which word we’ll use? Why “dolor” over “sadness”? “mutt” over “canine”? Lorna examines writers’ choices and then lets you write something, with this passage from Lewis Carroll in mind: “Must a name mean something?” Alice asked doubtfully.

“Of course, it must,” Humpty Dumpty said. “My name means the shape I am–and a good handsome shape it is, too.” Limited enrolment
