The SWG, in partnership with the Saskatoon Public Library, will host this Creative Writing workshop with Cooper Skjeie.
In this workshop, Cooper Skjeie will draw upon the imagery, feeling, and metaphor of autumn to inspire poetry from the rawness of human experience. He will answer questions about the creative writing process.
