Scavenging for Inspiration: Finding Poetry in News, Science, and Other Odd Places
In this generative workshop, we will explore poems written using news stories, weird facts, even overheard questions as jumping-off points, as openings into literature. Begin to learn how to find poetry anywhere and explore how to repurpose what is scattered across the public domain for your own work. Prompts to nudge us into free-writing will be provided, so be sure to bring your favorite writing materials.
Use and Abuse of Metaphor
“Use and Abuse of Metaphor” will sidestep theory in order to take a hard look at practical issues involving metaphor for the practicing poet. The workshop will involve analysis of a few poems and several exercises designed to make participants think a little harder each time a poem seems to call for a leap to metaphor. No advance preparation is required.
This event is fully booked.
