Chen Chen, The Art of Telling

Award-winning poet Chen Chen presents The Art of Telling September 10 from 10 a.m. – noon at the Charleston Library Society in partnership with the Poetry Society of South Carolina. Contradicting the usual writing advice of “show, don’t tell,” Chen will talk about telling in beautiful, unexpected, and politically alive ways. Participants will examine modes and moods of telling, such as the discursive, the meditative, and the conversational, or talky. $10-$15;¬†free for students.
