Periodic Table of Poetry: Presented by INK Art Space

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Periodic Table of Poems is a project that asks Spokane-area poets to closely examine their personal experiences and memories using an element of their choice.

The basic elements of our universe are ever-present: in the air we breathe, the soil we touch, the materials with which we work, and our own bodies. Very seldom do we pay attention to the building blocks of life, and how they feature in our daily experiences.

Leading up to the Get Lit! Festival, INK Art Space will host two writing workshops around this theme, led by poets and educators Brooke Matson and Laura Read. For more information on the workshops and how to register, visit inkspokane.org.

During the festival, we will celebrate the poets who participated in the Periodic Table workshops by hearing their work read aloud. The event is free and open to the public, with all ages welcome. A bound book, featuring work by the participating writers, will be for sale, with proceeds going to support INK's programs.

The evening will also feature a special appearance by Washington State Poet Laureate Tod Marshall!
