Sometimes there’s even an explosion or two. Join Berton House Writer-in-Residence Claire Caldwell as she guides participants through a series of poetic experiments to transform the raw ingredients of language into bright and bubbling concoctions. Everyone is welcome, from those who’ve never written a poem to those who’ve written dozens. No test tubes required — just bring your pen and notebook! SATURday Only, 1:00 - 5:00 Sierra Megas, Book-binding workshop This workshop will introduce participants to hand-binding books using the coptic stitch.
