Making Poems That Snap, Crackle, And Pop With Aimee Nezhukumatathil

Building upon Audre Lorde’s idea that “the sharing of joy…forms a bridge between the sharers which can be the basis for understanding much of what is not shared between them, and lessens the threat of their difference,” we will spend our time in workshop generating poems that sing and celebrate the various big and small delights of this earth. We will also discuss each other’s poems in workshop and each day learn a new poetic practice to help keep you generating new work long after you return home. Come prepared to roll up your sleeves and dig in!

Submit 1 poem for workshop via email no later than January 8, 2018.
