Sparks for Creative Expression in the Library’s Collections

When: Wed., May 8, 5:30-8 p.m. 2019

Discover a new character waiting in a 1903 hotel ledger as wide as a bed pillow. Unspool plot threads from messages scrawled across historic postcards. Let a pictorial map or a funky place mat from a roadside diner spark an idea for a setting. Encounter images or rhythms that serve as tinder for poetry or memoir. Join poet and librarian Wendy DeGroat in this workshop to ignite your creativity with fascinating artifacts from the library’s archives. Emerging and experienced writers welcome. Enrollment limited to 16 participants. Minimum age is 16. For information, contact Emma Ito at emma.ito@lva.virginia.gov or 692-3726.
