David Radavich will present a workshop exploring “The Self in the Poem” on Saturday, May 31, from 10 a.m. to noon at Providence United Methodist Church in Charlotte. A version of the poet’s “self” functions as the speaker in every poem, but what is the nature of that self? In relation to what other persons or objects in the poem? How different is a persona poem? What masks might the poet put on or take off? In a dramatic monologue, what selves are being expressed? These and other questions of lyric identity and relationship will be examined through a variety of poems in discussion.
Cost: $25 for Charlotte Writers’ Club members, $35 for non-members. To register contact email@example.com. Pay the workshop fee by clicking on the Donate button to your left and indicating you will attend the workshop as a member or non-member.
