Saturday, August 24, 2019 - 1:00pm

Join us on the fourth Saturday of each month at 1 p.m. for the UA Center for Creative Photography's Summer Series, programmed for families of all generations, all definitions, and all imaginations. Participate in drop-in photo-art workshops, explore the exhibitions through gallery activities, and more!

This month:

Where do poems come from? Come explore free writing, revision and collaboration in this accessible and enjoyable poetry-writing workshop with bilingual poet Logan Phillips. The session will focus on generating new writing in a positive and supportive environment, inspired and informed by the work of the many amazing writers represented in the "A Portrait of Poetry" exhibit. All ages and experience levels welcome.

Logan Phillips is a bilingual poet, performer, educator and DJ based in Tucson. Born in Cochise County, Arizona, to a family of Irish-Slavic ancestry, Phillips lived in and around Mexico City from 2006-2011, where he contributed to organizing the country's first regular poetry slam series. He has regularly performed in venues across the U.S., Latin America and beyond since 2007, and is author of the full-length book of poems Sonoran Strange (West End Press, 2015). Phillips is currently an MFA candidate in poetry at the University of Arizona.

Family-friendly snacks will be provided, or self-packed snacks are welcome in our public foyer. The CCP Summer Series is free and fantastical, could very well be your favorite summer plans ever, and no registration is required.

There is free event parking off of North Palm Drive via East Second Street.
