About the event

FOUND POETRY is a form of writing in which we compose a poem  from the words, phrases, fragments, and passages of an existing text—such as articles, essays, books, even advertisements. We erase, or black out, or cut up lines to create a wholly new work from what remains. In a sense, Found Poetry is a practice of writing that allows a “way in” to your voice by finding it through the voices of others.  As such, it is something of a silent  and powerful collaboration.  Join us for an afternoon in which you will sharpen your poetic perceptions,  strengthen your receptivity to the hidden and the mysterious, and boldly allow your inner artistic intuitions to blossom.  You will have the opportunity to create a visual component to complete your poem.

Supplies needed:   Please bring along photocopies of texts—books, articles,  advertisements, essays, etc.—with subject matter you are drawn to and which we will white-out, mark-up, or cut-and-paste  to compose your Found Poems.  If you are comfortable working on the originals of your texts, those are fine, too. All levels welcome and class size is limited to 8 participants for a wonderful small group experience!  

* Studio located in Potomac, Maryland.  Address will be given upon registration.  

** All ELP writing groups will have a joint end of season public reading.  Date and Location to be announced.

We appreciate your interest in our arts workshops, and we strive to provide an exceptional learning experience for all participants.

Cancellation by Participant:  Once you have registered and paid for an arts workshop, your payment is non-refundable. Our small class sizes are designed to ensure individualized attention and an immersive learning environment, and cancellations can significantly affect the quality of the experience for all participants.

No-Shows:  Participants who do not attend a workshop they have registered and paid for will not be eligible for a refund or credit. Please understand that your absence affects both your fellow participants and our instructors.

Transfers: If you are unable to attend a workshop but have someone else who can take your place, please inform us in advance with their details. Transfer requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis but are not guaranteed.

We truly value your commitment to our workshops and your understanding of our policy. This "No Refunds" policy enables us to continue offering intimate and high-quality arts education experiences.
