On Sunday, October 11th from 1 - 4 pm ET, I will be facilitating a generative writing workshop as part of the 2020 Letters Festival:
Overheard: The Poetry of Conversation, Headlines, Garbage
Poets have long used the material of everyday life—from snippets of overheard conversations to newspaper headlines, graffiti, garbage, and lists—to create lively snapshots of the "present" in their poems. In this generative workshop, we will read a range of examples, focusing on the moves the poems make, and then write some poems of our own. In addition to the drafts produced in class, participants should leave with numerous ideas for additional writing experiments to try on their own.
The cost is $15 to participate. Registration is open here.
I'll also be part of the closing night reading on Sunday, October 18th, reading alongside of Clinnesha D. Sibley, tanner menard, and Susan Steinberg. You can find details about the other workshops and events at the lostintheletters website.
