Part of the Syracuse Symposium

Part of the Syracuse Symposium series.

Laure-Anne Bosselaar (Pine Manor College)
Phil Memmer (YMCA Downtown Writers Center)

Preceding an evening of poetry, Bosselaar conducts a breakfast mini-seminar focused on the narrative elements of poems: how do poems tell stories, and how does storytelling function differently in a poem (for both the writer and the reader) than in other forms of writing? This session, facilitated by Memmer, is designed for serious writers and instructors, advanced adult writing students from the Downtown Writers Center, faculty, and creative writing MFA students from Syracuse University.

To RSVP, contact Phil Memmer [315-474-6851 x328] by April 19 and include any requests for accessibility accommodations.
