New Westminster’s poet laureate is offering a writing workshop at Anvil Centre this month.
Alan Hill will lead the workshop, Exploring the Poetry of Place, on Saturday, Feb. 23 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.
The workshop will give participants a chance to explore the power of writing about the significant places in their lives and to create poetry that explores important locations in their lives and in the community.
“Maybe that important place is your local park, store, café or historic site, or maybe it is a place that is much more personal to you,” says a write-up about the workshop.
Hill, who is the Royal City Literary Arts Society’s president, is the author of The Narrow Road to the Far West: Travelling New Westminster by Postcard, a book of poems about locations in and around New Westminster.
The session costs $15 for Royal City Literary Arts Society members and $25 for non-members.
