Poetry workshop

TRAVERSE CITY — Michigan Writers presents Personas and Masks in Contemporary Poetry.

The writing workshop will be led by Chris Dombrowski from 7 to 9 p.m., Tuesday, April 2, at the University Center on Cass Road, room 214. Students will leave the workshop with a least one completed exercise, and the “start” of a poem.

Dombrowski is the author of two books of poems, “By Cold Water,” a finalist for Foreword Magazines’s Poetry Book of the Year, and the newly released “Earth Again,” both from Wayne State University Press, as well as two chapbooks. His poems have appeared in numerous literary journals and anthologies including Poetry, Michigan Quarterly Review, Gulf Coast, Crazyhorse, Beloit Poetry Journal and others. He currently teaches creative writing at Interlochen Center for the Arts, and, with his family, divides his time between northern Michigan and his home in Missoula, Mont.

The workshop is free for Michigan Writers members and $10 for nonmembers, payable by cash or check. Nonmembers may join onsite for a $40 annual fee which will include the cost of the workshop. Prior registration is not necessary.
