Join us for an informal introduction to writing poetry at the Washington Park Library!

This six-week overview will cover some of the basics of finding your way into poetry. Diverse readings will guide our process and provide models to mimic for the beginner. All experience levels welcome.

Week 1: Approaches to Writing the Self Week 2: Poetry Cheats: Lists, Letters, Dreams Week 3: Writing Trauma or Personal Histories Week 4: Inhabiting the Object – Exercise your Imagination Week 5: Stuck? Use What You Know: Writing Your Day Week 6: Constructed Poems - Cento / Golden Shovel

These classes will be run by the lovely Rosalynde Vas Dias. She is Frequency Writer’s current Artistic Director. Her poetry has appeared in Crazyhorse, The Cincinnati Review, West Branch, The Pinch, Laurel Review, The Collagist, The Four Way Review, and elsewhere. Her first book, Only Blue Body, won the 2011 Robert Dana Award offered by Anhinga Press. In the fall of 2014, a selection of her linked poems, ‘Sweet Herald’, was a Campbell Corner Distinguished Entry.

Frequency is a growing community of writers based in Providence, Rhode Island. Through workshops, free events, talks, readings, and open mics, we aim to engage writers of all levels of experience, ages, and backgrounds. Our courses are designed both to challenge and support students, while also encouraging collaboration with other local creative communities. Frequency is a moving creation of the people in it.
