Each of us has a voice that is powerful, a voice that is meant to share the stories we hold inside of us. Where do stories take root? When and where does the occasion of poetry take place? How does poetry plant itself early on in our artistic beginnings? During this eight-week workshop we will focus on and discuss poetry that investigates the human experience. We will learn more about that ways in which poetry can serve as seeds to create the food that nurtures and heals the flooding of our internal heartscapes. We’ll use poetry to explore how the art of remembering can allow us to re-member – and put ourselves back together after rupture. This course is meant for writers at all levels and is primarily designed for beginning and intermediate poets who wish to expand their knowledge of craft and poetic forms. This will be a generative poetry course with prompts designed to help you create new poems while learning about yourself.
