Join Washington State Poet Laureate Rena Priest for a generative poetry workshop called “How to Catch a Salmon Poem.” Participants will receive a packet of salmon poems, hear other salmon-related poetry, and respond to a series of prompts. By the end of the workshop, attendees will have a fresh catch of ideas to help reel in new salmon poems of their own. This workshop is free and open to everyone
