Six Week Organic Poetry workshop Hugo House

March 27, 2011
Splabman

A shakeup is essential for the purposes of transformation (Vladimir Mayakovsky).

The process of training your ear to capture the chaotic energy of the moment in a poem is sometimes called organic poetry, where composition is an occasion of experience or experiment in consciousness. An entertaining workshop for serious writers of all levels of experience seeking a new approach to composition. Including sound from interviews with poets of this tradition (McClure, Myles, Rothenberg, Ginsberg, Waldman, others); lively discussions & writing exercises designed to help the act of writing be exhilarating revelation of content.

Instructor: Paul Nelson

Meets: Saturday, April 09, 2011 – Saturday, May 14, 2011
Saturday, 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Min: 5 Max: 15
