Poetry Workshop: Christopher Johnson Paints Pictures with Words

May 31 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm

Smith Hill Library – Adult Area

Poetry Workshop: Christopher Johnson

Local poet, playwright and storyteller, Christopher Johnson demonstrates his technique of writing condensing similes to metaphors, combining metaphors to create compound metaphors, and finally culminating the images to paint a poem.

Christopher Johnson is the recipient of the 2018 Rhode Island State Council of the Arts Fellowship for Playwriting and a finalist for the 2018 for the McColl Johnson Fellowship. Freelance writer, poet and an award-winning spoken word artist, Christopher Johnson’s spoken word commands in a way that is uncomfortable and arresting. A self-actualized artist, it has been said that his pieces touch the heart with feathers and barbed wire alike, speaking uncomfortable truths, invoking the best and worst of human emotions.
