The Art of Listening: Exploring Ourselves through Poetry

Friends of the Field Memorial Library in Conway

Present a Workshop on The Art of Listening: Exploring Ourselves through Poetry
This workshop is postponed until spring 2022. Please check back for the new date.

Open to High School Teens (14 years+) and Adults

(Note:  Workshop numbers are limited and COVID-19 precautions may apply. NEW writers/poets are welcome! Participants will be invited – not required – to share their work with the community.)

LEADER:  Christian McEwen is a writer, educator, and cultural activist. She is excited to bring this workshop to Conway so that younger and older writers can energize and inspire each other as well as use the genre of their choice to write, share and discuss their work.  She is an Adjunct Faculty member for Williams College’s Center for Environmental Studies and grew up in the Borders of Scotland.  She attended King’s College, Cambridge and UC Berkeley and now lives in Williamsburg. Since leaving New York City twenty years ago, she has continued to teach, create and write, including her book, World Enough & Time: On Creativity and Slowing Down (2011), now in its seventh printing.
