SPRING: Poetry of the Everyday Workshop w John Morrison | Apr 28 - May 26

“Most of us live in a sort of linear and horizontal way, but what lyric poems and poetry are trying to do is probably to live in a vertical way down the shaft of one of those single horizontal moments.” Eamon Grennan

So much of the delight and depth of poetry comes from just paying attention. The most ordinary in the light of poetry reflects and shines with our inner life. What makes an image resonate? What tricks us into reverie? To write poetry is to take the mundane others dismiss for the inspiration it is always offering. In this session, we will see what moments and objects we can work loose from our day-to-day and lift up into poetry. In our exploration, we’ll  take our lead from great poems and the storehouse of our lives. Come prepared to read, scribble on generative exercises, share in a generous group, and take home potent drafts for your poetry practice. | Maximum: 12 writers
