Ever dream about becoming an author? Love to write poetry? Want some guidance and encouragement from a professional writer?

If the Tucson Festival of Books motivates you to finally pick up that pen, then Pima Community College’s Creative Writing Weekend Workshop could be for you.

The March 28-30 workshop, at PCC’s Downtown Campus, will offer a focused exploration of poetry writing with a variety of activities and lots of hands-on practice.

Published author Kristi Maxwell will lead the workshop. She

is the author of five books of poetry: Realm Sixty-four, Hush Sessions, Re-, That Our Eyes Be Rigged (forthcoming in 2014) and PLAN/K. She has taught for Pima and The University of Arizona Poetry Center. Currently, she is a lecturer at the University of Tennessee, where she teaches creative writing, literature, public writing and composition. She also is the co-founder of KnowHow, a Knoxville-based organization that focuses on social justice and youth empowerment through the arts.

The cost of this intensive three-day workshop is $152. Workshop participants will meet 6-8 p.m., Friday, and 9 a.m-5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
