Explore the generative aspects of poetry and fortune-telling at this salon and poetry reading.
This event is part of a mini pop-up book tour featuring Emily Carrís Tarot Romance and fourth poetry collection, Name Your Bird Without A Gun (Spork Press, 2020). Equal parts poetry reading, writing workshop, and fortune-telling salon, this event is designed to invite your imaginations to spark off each otherís, to jolt you into poems you didnít know you had inside you, and to introduce you to the generative intersections of creativity and fortune-telling. Each aspect of the event will be curated with your specific, personal, and important experience in mind.
When you RSVP, you will be invited to share a question - personal, professional, work-related, family-related, romance-related - to ask Emily. Emily will use these questions to choreograph the poetry reading, interactive writing activities, and fortune-telling.
This salon is open to writers of all levels and genres, including folks who donít yet (know how to) self-identify as writers. Come prepared to experience your creativity as a catalyst for radical acts of connection - even and especially in these disconnecting times! Bring open minds, open ears, and open hearts - along with something to write with and on - and leave with inspiration for your creative endeavors, whether those happen on or off the page.
Come for the magic and stay for the poetry!
