Keyano College Lecture Series: How to Write Poems About Fires

Keyano College is once again hosting a free lecture series for the community to enjoy.

The lecture series is hosted by various instructors from the College, and the lectures range in theme and topic. Attending a lecture is a wonderful opportunity to engage in meaningful conversation and to learn something new about a topic that has piqued your interest! 

The next lecture will be held on Friday, October 28, 2016 and will explore "How to Write Poems About Fires". The lecture will be hosted by Dr. Ryan Cox, an English instructor at Keyano.  

Dr. Cox seeks to demystify the process of creating a poem and will answer questions such as, "How do you write a poem?" and "What does a poem even look like?"

There will also be a special presentation of new poetry that was written with the support of an Alberta Foundation for the Arts grant.

Be sure to make Oct. 28th in your calendars and join Dr. Cox in the Keyano Recital Theatre at 7 pm.
