Nickole Brown at Bookworks
Defamiliarizing the Apple:
A Wingbeats II Poetry Writing Workshop
September 10, 7 p.m.
Free workshop—no registration necessary.

Imagery is the heart of good poetry, but if we reach for the easy image, we find cliché. How to avoid cliché? Awareness is Nickole Brown’s answer—close attention to the world around us—so that when we write, we make the familiar strange. The apple, for example. You won’t look at an apple the same after this workshop.
