THE LUMINOUS DARK w/ Ashley Toliver

A Poetry Intensive led by Ashley Toliver.

“Whatever inspiration is, it’s born from a continuous ‘I don’t know.’” - Wisława Szymborska

In this three-hour workshop, we'll seek to uncover the obsessions, ideas, and imagery that drive our poems. Through experimentation with radical revision and embodied writing exercises, we'll tap into our inner knowing to find more wildness in our work and more freedom in the creative process. Come with 5-10 unfinished poems and an openness to pursuing intuitive pathways in this dynamic class.

HOW TO DRAW A GHOST w/ Zachary Schomburg

HOW TO DRAW A GHOST w/ Zachary Schomburg

HOW TO DRAW A GHOST

Led by Zachary Schomburg

First, we’ll talk about how to draw a ghost while looking at a wide range of ghost illustrations. Then we’ll draw ghosts. How do we see ghosts when we draw them? What makes a ghost and what makes a ghost drawing? What kind of ghosts will we be, and how will we be drawn? We’ll take turns reading writing about ghosts as we draw them. And we won’t stop until we’ve drawn the right ghost for us.

Secondly, we’ll do some poem writing for/about ghosts. We'll talk about how ghosts can properly haunt a short piece of writing. By the end of the workshop, we’ll each have new drawing of ghosts, and a ghost poem.

PLEASE HOLD: Silence and Tension in Flash Fiction

w/ Alissa Hattman

At first glance, it may sound like a paradox—how does language express its absence? In this workshop, we will consider that question and examine the art of silence through sample readings, discussion, generative writing, listening and sharing. We will think about the types of silences in short-form writing, who or what is silenced, and how silence builds tension; finally, we will write into the secret silences, what Ada Limón describes as a “silence that comes back, a million times bigger than me, sneaking into my bones and wails and wails and wails until I can’t be quiet anymore.” In a supportive, collaborative space, this workshop will focus on short-form fiction, but is open to all. 

$30

ALISSA HATTMAN is a writer and teacher living in Oregon. Her flash fiction has appeared in Gravel, Propeller, American Writers Review, Big Other, mojo, Shirley Magazine, and SUSAN, among other publications. In 2009, she received her MFA in Fiction at Pacific University and, in 2013, she completed a MA in English Literature from Portland State University. She teaches writing full-time at Chemeketa Community College in Salem. More at www.alissahattman.com

Early Summer Poetry Workshop w/ Zachary Schomburg
May
28
to Jul 2

Early Summer Poetry Workshop w/ Zachary Schomburg

Come join Zachary Schomburg this early summer at Outlet for a six week Poetry workshop.

This will be a generative poetry workshop for poets at all levels. The main focus will be to sustain a poetry writing practice for six weeks with access to a small group of focused readers. After each workshop, Zachary will give the group a prompt/assignment to complete for the week, one that addresses some aspect of poetry writing brought up in your group conversations. The participants will spend the beginning of the following week's workshop discussing your experiences with the assignment.

The workshop will be capped at 6 people, so everyone will get about 20 minutes of focused group discussion of their own new work at each meeting. The class will meet once per week for 6 total weeks starting on May 28 and meeting every Tuesday from 6:00 to 8:30. 

At the end of six weeks, the group will be enrolled in our own riso workshop with the goal of printing a riso poetry broadside of a poem generated from the poetry workshop.

$200 total per person for the 6 weeks.
Contact Zach to reserve your spot:

Diary Comics with Liz Yerby

In this two hour workshop attendants will make a four panel diary comic of their own, which will be assembled into a zine distributed to each attendee after the event!

Then we will help each other explore mediums and ideas to create their own four panel masterpiece. At the end of the class we will scan our pieces, and a zine with the classes participants will be sent out a few days after the class is done! hopefully you’ll leave inspired and try your hand at creating daily diary comics for weeks or months a time. They’re like cool hand drawn Instagram stories.
