Upcoming classes: Poetry
SATURDAY, DEC. 5th | In this one-day workshop, we will explore innovative ways to spark new writing. We will use a variety of different media as we search for access to unique ways to enter the creative flow.
SUNDAY, DEC. 19th | Poets have been focusing their work on the body for ages — on pleasure, on identity, on beauty, on illness, and on the body as a living target. We write from our lived experiences and the way our body moves through the world shapes our stories and songs. As we revisit on the page what our bodies endure, it is necessary to build a practice centered in tenderness and care. This 3-hour online class is a generative space to explore pleasure, trauma, survival and healing through writing poetry about the body. We will dive into themes of sexuality, desire and pain, while reading poems by authors such as Leila Chatti, Derrick Austin and Destiny Birdsong.
