FINDING YOUR MUSE
July 25 at 6:00 pm$10
The Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center is pleased to announce a workshop and reading from esteemed local author Judith Sornberger. This event is a celebration of the publication of Judith’s tenth collection of poetry, The Book of Muses, which is hot off the presses. In this newest book, the poet invites readers to open the door (or window, or our hearts) to welcome the Muse in her many guises. Both events will be held on Tuesday, July 25th. The writing workshop will start at 6PM and will be held in the Main Gallery at the Gmeiner. There is a fee of $10 for the workshop, and pre-registration is required. The book reading and party will follow at 7PM in the Main Gallery. The reading is free and no registration is required.
Come have fun, find inspiration, and discover your muse at the workshop “Finding Your Muse in Art: A Fun Writing Workshop with author Judith Sornberger!” In conjunction with Jonathan Bond’s “Rustic Beauty” exhibit, and guided by the poet, participants will imagine their ways into the scenes of these gorgeous paintings and discover ways to write their own poems, inspired by the muses they find in the images in the gallery. Judith is an accomplished teacher who first taught creative writing and literature in Nebraska prisons and since then has taught in many venues, including at Mansfield University. If you are interested in participating in the workshop, please contact Carrie Heath, the director of the Gmeiner, at 570-724-1917 or email@example.com to sign up and pay the $10 fee.
