Adult Classes

"Bird Poetry Workshop" with Megan O'Brien
Wednesday March 23 7:00-9:00PM
Location: McClellan Ranch Preserve, Cupertino (22221 McClellan Rd.)
Birds are often a source of inspiration for many art forms - painting, photography, sculpture and even music. One such art form that is often overlooked, but that can lend itself to wonderful sweeps of creativity, is Poetry. If you love birds and the spoken word, or just want to liberate your birding imagination by giving it a voice, join us for this special one-night workshop to help you learn how to tap into your own wells of bird-themed inspiration. Register Online or by calling 408-252-3747.

The workshop will focus on the works of well known nature poets, such as Emily Dickinson, Marianne Moore, Julie Zickefoose, and more. Participants will explore how to use words to express feelings about birds, and will be invited to share their written endeavors with each other in a safe and friendly environment. All skill levels are welcome, and participants are encouraged to bring poems written previously to share with the group. Let your creativity take flight!

Megan O?Brien is an experienced birder, and likely a familiar name to anyone who has participated in the SCVAS Birdathon the last decade. She is currently an Environmental Studies major at Whitman College, studying creative writing and poetry.
