Poetics as Cosmology Cascadian Zen

Poetics as Cosmology Cascadian Zen Basket One: Buddha Way

A five week online (Zoom) workshop for continuing participants in the online workshops facilitated by Cascadia Poetics Lab and Poetry Postcard Fest Co-Founder Paul E Nelson. Participate in reading and discussion of foundational essays, interviews, listening and other assignments, as well as spontaneous poetry composition exercises, in the second of two five week courses. This season we will be exploring passages from Cascadian Zen Vol 1 – Basket One: The Buddha Way. How can one’s poetics be a cosmology and maintain some experience of the Poetry Postcard Fest, to allow one’s life as a poet to rise in one’s personal hierarchy of duties/activities? $250 for each five week session per person, scholarships are available. Thursday nights, 3-5pm (February 1, 8, 15, 22, & 29, 2024) by invitation only. Preference given to participants who wish to commit to both five-week sessions in the 2024 season.
