Instructors to Read, Analyze Poetry at "Writing Love Poems" Workshop
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Pamela Main and Patricia O’Brien, both instructors in English at Penn State Brandywine, will explore imagery, narration and metaphor during their workshop, “Writing Love Poems: Techniques for Expression,” at the Chester County Library on Saturday, Feb. 12 from 1 to 2 p.m.
“Its theme was chosen as a Valentine's Day event, and our aim is to give aspiring poets a few tips on writing poems about various kinds of love,” Main said. “We will read and analyze poems about romantic love, love of family and love of animals. Attendees can also read their own poems at the event,” she added.
Main is the coordinator of the campus’ Writing Studio. O’Brien has been an English instructor for over 20 years and currently teaches creative writing and composition. Additionally, Main and O'Brien have published fiction and poetry in local and national magazines and journals.
The Chester County Library is located at 450 Exton Square Parkway, Exton. Registration for the event, which is free and open to the public, is required because of limited seating. To register, go to http://bit.ly/i1pLUp online.
