Jackson Rep to Lead Workshop at NCWN Conference in Asheville

Dr. Catherine Carter, the NCWN-West representative for Jackson County, will be leading a workshop in revising poetry for sound, "It Looks Like a Hairball", from 9:00 to 10:30 Sunday morning, November 10th, at the NCWN fall conference at the Doubletree Hilton in Asheville.  27 are currently registered for the workshop, but walk-ins are are welcome as long the the room has space.

Carter will use contemporary poems to discuss a few of the ways in which a poem can be built around the sounds of single words, model one possible process for revising a poem in this way, and encourage participants to do this with their own works. Participants should bring a hard copy of one or two of their own shorter poems (under a page is preferable) to work on.
