This 2-session webinar is FREE, in celebration of National Poetry Month, to thank you for supporting me in my first year of offering webinars.
Paul Eluard wrote, “There is another world, and it is in this one.” Poems we remember, poems we return to, likely presence for us what it means to be human, or spirit incarnate. How do we write poems that transcend mere description of our visible world? Conversely, how do we write poems about the invisible world, without weighty abstractions, and instead with the sensory details of our earthbound lives? We will look at poems by other poets to discuss whether they successfully or unsuccessfully bear witness to human experience. We will then generate our own poems while attending to aspects of poem-making that establish the poet as credible witness.
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.”
