Workshop - Poetry Workshop Led by Leanne Hoppe
“There is a house that is no more a house, / Upon a farm that is no more a farm / And in a town that is no more a town. / The road there, if you’ll let a guide direct you / Who only has at heart your getting lost, / May seem as if it should have been a quarry” – Robert Frost. Writing poetry is about the journey, not the destination. Part of that journey is seeing what you’ll discover, surprising yourself and enjoying the bumps in the road. Leanne Hoppe will be your poet tour guide on this adventure—all abilities and experience levels are welcome. Hoppe, who teaches at Lorain County Community College, received her master’s degree in creative writing from Boston University, and her work appears or is forthcoming in Bayou Magazine, Gravel and Driftwood Press. Her translations of the Italian poet Michela Zanarella will be published this summer by Bordighera Press.
