DIY Friday – Writers Workshop

Leif Gregersen will lead us through this Writer’s Workshop. Leif had early ambitions of becoming a writer but was sidetracked by a love of sports, flying, and the military. Leif has worked as a journalist, photographer, fiction writer and has run numerous workshops. His poetry has been collected in four volumes and he lives happily ever after in McCauley neighborhood here in Edmonton.

We look forward to having you join us as we put pen to paper here at McLuhan House. Starting with simple forms of poetry, like a Haiku, we will working our way up to more complicated forms and use photo prompts. There will be a fair bit of sharing and reading classic poems like “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night.”

But wait… there’s more! You will also get a chance to learn a little about which buttons and switches to use on the camera and some of the simple editing functions of standard laptops (Mac preferred). We will also talk a bit about iPhone photography and editing.
