Margaret Rozga Poetry Play Date at All Writers'


From the desk of Kathie Giorgio, Director, AllWriters' Workplace & Workshop LLC:
WAUKESHA – Is there a poet lurking inside you, waiting to get out? Or are you already ‘versed’ in the art of poetry? Novice to expert, you’ll enjoy this creative and inspirational workshop that will set you well on the way to your next, or first, great work. AllWriters’ Workplace & Workshop welcomes special guest lecturer MARGARET ROZGA with her workshop, POETRY PLAY DATE.
Poems often start with what’s close at hand; what you see, or even overlook, daily. An object, experience or chance remark can unravel into inspiration. In this workshop, you’ll engage in observation exercises specifically tailored to stimulate your inner poet, guided by select works provided by your instructor. You’ll also be encouraged to compose your own original piece and share it for feedback, setting you well on the path to a finished poem.
MARGARET ROZGA is a poet, playwright and professor emerita of English at UW Waukesha. She is the author of two books and served as managing editor for a project to raise money for the First Amendment Protection Fund. Her poems have appeared most recently in Burdock, New Verse News, Wisconsin Citizens Media Cooperative, Nimrod, Split This Rock Poem of the Week. She had been nominated for a Pushcart Prize and awarded a 2014 Creative Performing Artists and Writers Fellowship by the American Antiquarian Society.

Celebrity Saturdays are a great chance to broaden your knowledge of what it takes to be successful and to learn from writers who are already knee deep in an author’s life. Margaret Rozga’s workshop will be held on Saturday, July 19th, 2014. This event runs from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and costs $85, which includes a lunch catered by Waukesha’s own Café de Art.
