Twenty Poems in a Day: A Poem-Making Workshop
The purpose of this workshop is to set aside an entire day to write poems with a fantastic group of other poets. Four hours of writing experiments, using an array of texts to create collages of language and thought in the course of adding to the “stock of available reality.” Our day’s work: to watch as language and thought, dreams, lists, technical journals, field guides, tracts and herbal tomes swirl into our memories and dreams and form strange syntheses; to reorder our experience of living in the world of things and ideas as poets and human beings. And to write as much as you have ever written in one day. The transformation of the real and the making of speculative worlds. Living in the world in and through the imagination.
These sessions have been attended by current, past, and prospective MFA students; published poets; composers; painters; fiction writers; beginning poets; playwrights; and anyone else interested in writing a lot in an atmosphere of energy and warmth among kindred spirits.
Event will take place in the Inwood neighborhood of Manhattan, easily accessible by subway.
Tuition: $100/ $75 for students
