About the event
In this workshop on Found Poetry, we will explore the art of using text to create something new and beautiful.
We will take a piece of text that is important to us like a letter, a favorite quote, article or book passage and highlight the words and phrases that speak out to us. We will use these words and phrases to create a poem or a few poems. We will then have the opportunity to use art supplies (markers, watercolors, etc) to create visual representation of the poem.
This is a course for everyone from those who consider themselves seasoned poets and those who are just now exploring their interests in poetry.
DeShauna Hollie is a writer from Waco, Texas. She loves growing flowers and riding her bike. She first fell in love with writing poetry when introduced to haiku’s in a high school English class. Her poetry reflects everyday interactions with nature with a hint of activism. She likes playing around with poetry and art so you can often find her creating ways for others to experience poetry by designing poetry inspired jewelry, clothing and ornaments.
