wOrdpLaY the MUSE edition
Tuesday evenings 6-8 pm
Join us for six sessions of wOrdpLay – two hours of writing projects and prompts designed to invite the unexpected, the spontaneous, and the serendipitous into your work, life and play.
This time we will be playing with different muses as inspiration each week, and we will amuse ourselves in the process.
Come meet the nine muses Calliope (epic poetry), Clio (history), Erato (love poetry, lyric art), Euterpe (music), Melpomene (tragedy), Polymnia(hymns), Terpsichore (dance), Thalia (comedy), Urania (astronomy) – yes astronomy – and some wonderful wOrdpLaY participants as well!
Whether you are a poet, a fiction or non-fiction writer, an aspiring writer, a musician or a visual or performance artist, or someone who simply loves the joy of words, this is an opportunity to amuse yourself with words as they dance, sing, laugh, cry and shimmer like stars during the upcoming wOrdpLaY the MUSE edition.
Dates: March 24th – April 28th
March 24th, 31st
April 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th
Tuesday evenings 6-8 pm.
Workshop leader: Carolyn Boll
Passionate about the intersection of all the arts, and a firm believer in the part the arts and writing can play in one’s well-being, Carolyn Boll leads workshops that celebrate creativity, spontaneity, and the place for improvisation in both our creative and our daily lives.
The co-curator of Poetic Notions, the transdisciplinary art show that featured collaborations between poets and visual artists working with a variety of media, was a reflection of her enJOYment of art that calls to us to explore the creative process, and the potential for surprise that exists in the celebration of not knowing where your creativity might lead you.
A trained dancer, and recipient of several Canada Council and Quebec multi-media and choreography grants, author Carolyn Boll is a graduate of The Humber School for Writers. Her poems, short stories and collages have appeared in Lavender Review, The Gay & Lesbian Review, and Mayday Magazine; and her non-fiction writing has appeared in The Dance Current and The Montreal Gazette.
Her first book, a playful partnering between poetry, image and dance, is called Social Dance A Book of Ballroom Poetry and was published by Sally Jane Books, the specialty imprint of lesbian indie publisher Headmistress Press.
Join us at Métèque the collaborative art space in the heart of NDG.
