Tucsonans inspired by last weekend's Festival of Books, listen up: Pima Community College is hosting a creative writing weekend this Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday.
From the press release:
What differentiates the impulse to write poetry from the impulse to write prose? Can that seed go either way?
These questions and other innovative ways of thinking about poetry, fiction, the essay and more will be explored during Pima Community College’s spring 2016 Creative Writing Weekend Workshop on poetry writing led by writer and editor Aisha Sabatini Sloan. We will look at literary models that hover – deliriously – between fiction, poetry and the essay.
The event will take place at Downtown Campus (1255 N. Stone Avenue, room AH 140) March 25-27.
The workshop beings on Friday at 6 p.m. with a two hour session, and continues on Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Pima students can enroll in the course (Writing 298T2, CRN 22557
) as they do with regular classes. Non-students must fill out the college admission form
before enrolling in the two-credit course. The cost of this three-day workshop is $177 for Arizona residents.
