Consciousness Spelunking


How might poetry help us get in touch with the parts of ourselves we don’t know we know? This one-weekend workshop will experiment with the idea of poetry as exploration. In a series of writing games and experiments, we'll play around with borrowed words, images and sounds. On Saturday afternoon, students will start four poems within ninety minutes. After this class, students can pick one poem to work on or combine the multiple drafts into one poem. The next day, we'll workshop the poems, and participants will get feedback from classmates and the instructor. Poets whose work we'll read will include André Breton, Valerie Mejer Caso, Wanda Coleman and John Yau.
