Galway Kinnell Poetry Festival

Endless Beautiful is teaming up with the Galway Kinnell Poetry Festival this year! We will host an Endless Beautiful writing workshop September 15th, 10am – 12pm at the Hampton Inn Board Room at 2 George Street in Pawtucket!

This festival is held in honor of Pulitzer Prize winning poet Galway Kinnell, who grew up in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. Read more about Galway Kinnell here. The Poetry Foundation describes Kinnell as “an award-winning poet best known for poetry that connects the experiences of daily life to much larger poetic, spiritual, and cultural forces. Often focusing on the claims of nature and society on the individual, Kinnell’s poems explore psychological states in precise and sonorous free verse.”

This EB workshop will feature a brand new custom audio Session with soundscapes sourced exclusively from Pawtucket. Come join us for two hours of listening, creating, and sharing!

Here’s our description of the workshop! See you there!

Pawtucket Soundscapes – Using Sound as Inspiration –
Endless Beautiful featuring Carolyn Decker and Lucas Pralle

Endless Beautiful workshops combine multimedia technology and creative writing to spur meaningful conversation. This workshop will feature a 15 minute Audio Session prompt using sounds collected exclusively from Pawtucket. We’ll use the Endless Beautiful Method to listen, create, and share using this audio content as the inspiration for our writing. By simultaneously listening and writing, we will explore the sensory aspects of creative writing in surprising ways. We will write and share our work during the workshop to practice reading our work in a supportive and constructive public setting!

Come and write with us using soundscapes that would be familiar to Galway Kinnell growing up in Pawtucket! The workshop is free and suitable for all ages and levels of writing experience.
Saturday, September 15 from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
