Come play in the Vernon County archives with poet Elizabeth Hoover!

In this generative workshop, we will experiment with writing poetry in concert with archival research. We will read the work of three poets who engage in archival research, meaning research that involves handling primary source materials like letters, diaries, photographs, and recordings, among others. In addition, we will write our own poetry using archival objects as a source of inspiration.

Registration is limited, please go to event URL to register. The DWC offers sliding scale tuition ($20-$50); scholarships are also available.
