Redmond Reads Poetry: "Once Upon a Time in a Far-Off Land"
A Fairy Tale Poetry Workshop for Teens
1 p.m., Saturday, April 6
Redmond Library, Meeting Room 1
If you've ever been interested in magic spells, slaying dragons, transformation, and happily ever after, visit this poetry workshop where you will use fairy tales as a jumping off point for your own work.
Join Redmond Poet Laureate Jeannine Hall Gailey to write poems in the voices of fairy tale characters, using our imaginations to discover the inner lives of bored princesses in towers, princes who fall in love with unavailable women, and even monsters unfairly maligned.
