POEROTICA: Writing Love Poems for Our Supreme Otherness
Octavio Paz writes, in THE OTHER VOICE: ESSAYS ON MODERN POETRY, “Eroticism is first and foremost a thirst for otherness. And the supernatural is the supreme otherness. This is perhaps the most noble aim of poetry, to attach ourselves to the world around us, to turn desire into love, to embrace, finally what always evades us, what is beyond, but what is always there—the unspoken, the spirit, the soul.” How do we write humanly AND transcendently about love, longing, sex, and heartbreak? Exploring sample poems, we will generate lots of new writing to re-see and re-speak our love stories, without sentimentality, clichés, and TMI (too much information)!

NOTE: Each session's replay video will be emailed within 24 hours post-session, so you won’t miss anything if you can’t attend “live.”
