Writing as Waking Dream

Writing as Waking Dream


In this weekend workshop, we’ll start a series of poems (four poems in ninety minutes) that employ the logic and imagery of dreams. Using borrowed language, images, music and film as inspiration, students will learn techniques to tap into their unconscious mind and break habits of thinking. The next day, we’ll workshop one dream poem by each student. Readings will include poems by Thomas Devaney, Elaine Equi, David Shapiro, Jayne Cortez, Fanny Howe and others. Class sessions will meet synchronously via Zoom.
