RHINO Poetry Forum: Workshop with Daniela Olszewska | SUNDAY 10-23-16



Evanston Public Library

ROOM 108 – Small Meeting Room

Church & Orrington




Daniela Olszewska is the author of three full-length collections of poetry: cloudfang : : cakedirt (Horse Less Press, 2012), True Confessions of an Escapee from The Capra Facility for Wayward Girls (Spittoon Press, 2013), and Citizen J (Artifice Books, 2013). With Carol Guess, she is the co-author of How To Feel Confident With Your Special Talents (Black Lawrence Press, 2014) and Human-Ghost Hybrid Project (Black Lawrence Press, forthcoming).

Topic: Repetition and Incantation: This class will explore the effects of repetition and incantation in contemporary poems. We will read newer poems that make use of repetition and incantation and we will write our own poems modeled off of the reading.

Drop in, have poems critiqued, and participate in an ongoing discussion of poetry and poetics. Sessions are free* and no registration is required.

Bring 15 or more copies (2 page limit) of a poem you want critiqued.

This project is partially supported by grants from: Poets & Writers, the Illinois Arts Council and The MacArthur Fund for Arts and Culture at the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation.
