Workshop results

28 06 2010

One of the best I’ve attended, Linda Leedy Schneider led an incredible workshop on Saturday. I walked away with eleven new poems and lots of inspiration. It was great!

One of the poems that came out of it is called “portrait” which came out of a prompt where each of us was given an old, sepia-tone photograph of a person/people and were asked to write their story. My photo was of a small girl in a dress with a large bow in her hair. I’m guessing the picture was of the 1930-40 vintage. I’ve posted the poem in the character sketches section. I hope you enjoy it!

Beautiful poem, “Portrait”. It made me return to a photo of my mother (which would have predated this one) in her big hair bow and ruffled home-made dress. Their stories might have been similar: orphaned at an early age. Excellent! Imaginative poetry where you had to make the story line. Vivid enough to draw me into the story. Poignant!
