Poetry Writing Weekend

If this workshop captures your interest, you probably understand that poetry is a part of our daily lives. We will begin by reading poems then explore writing in open and fixed forms, and most important of all, we will share our poetry to strengthen our poetic voices. Workshop sessions will include discussion of poems after which we will focus on the sharing and reading your work. Be prepared to immerse yourself in poetry, to read and share your work, and create at least three new poems during our poetic weekend together. Recommended, but not required reading: James Wright, Above the River Li-Young Lee, Book of My Nights Momaday, The Way to Rainy Mountain Tapahonso, A Radiant Curve
