LAST CHANCE: EARLY BIRD prices for Modes in Poems end Friday!

Advance registration needed to study live 
with acclaimed poet and educator Natasha Sajé.  

Modes in Poems with Natasha Saj_
The Writer's Garret  . 1250 Majesty Drive  .  Dallas, TX 75247

In this workshop, we'll define the four modes-lyric, narrative, argument, description-and read examples of each, discussing how we use them to diagnose issues and start revision. Then we'll turn to participants' poems, first identifying the dominant mode and then asking whether the poem would be better served by a different one.
