Poetry and (Work)Place: Inviting Your Vocation into Your Poetry with McKenzie Lynn Tozan

Registration is now open for this workshop (below). There are 25 seats available (limit 30 seats).

As writers, there are two reoccurring hurdles that we face: time and what to write about. Recently, I’ve
discovered a method that has helped me write vocational poetry, or poems which invite, involve, and
reinvent the goings-on and observations of the workplace. In this workshop, I will share examples of
vocational poetry and exercises that invite our many, varied jobs, each with their own peculiarities, into
some new, on-the-spot poems.

Appropriate for: Anyone who has some sort of job and loves poetry.

This event is FREE and open to the public.

Bio: Tozan, MFA in Poetry from Western Michigan University, teaches composition at Indiana
University South Bend. Tozan served as the Layout and Design Editor at New Issues Poetry and Prose
and as an Associate Poetry Editor for Third Coast.

Location: Upjohn Library Commons room 306, Kalamazoo College
