Join the Poet Laureate of Oregon, Anis Mojgani, in this poetry workshop.
Aspects of the creative process can be nothing more than allowing oneself the space to respond to something given. Whether from the external world or one’s own interior, letting ourselves dialogue and dance with the expression is a way to move us towards a realized creative action and foster this continuing conversation.
Anis Mojgani is the current Poet Laureate of Oregon. A two-time individual champion of the National Poetry Slam and winner of the International World Cup Poetry Slam, Anis has been awarded creative residences from the Vermont Studio Center, The Bloedel Nature Reserve, The Sou’wester, and the Oregon Literary Arts Writers-In-The-Schools program. He has done commissioned work for the Getty Museum and the Peabody Essex Museum, and is the author of five books of poetry and an opera libretto. His work has also appeared on HBO, NPR, in the pages of such journals as Rattle, Platypus, and Bat City Review, amongst others. Originally from New Orleans, Anis currently lives in Portland Oregon.
