As poets, our job is to bear witness from a deeper place than the shrill of the news room. What has surprised you about yourself in this unprecedented time of global change? Beyond the din of commentary and panic, what is happening at home in yourself?
As a small supportive Zoom circle, we’ll read and write poetry that opens possibilities and fresh perspectives. I will email the poems before class. These will serve to inspire as we write from a prompt. We will do our Free Rites and share these aloud. Feedback on more polished work will follow. This is suitable for new as well as seasoned poets.
Four Wednesdays from 10- 12:30 pm starting 24 June.
I will be organizing other groups so if you are interested in an evening class, I will consider this. I’m willing to travel to offer weekend workshops in your area, if you organize it.
If you are interested in joining us, please contact me HERE.
Some of the workshops she has offered include:
The Shamanic Power of Poetry, Writing Our Way Home, Inventing the Poet, Communing with the Greats, Embracing the Wind, Poetry as a Portal, Lyric Poetry, Persona Poetry, Elegies, Recollections, Rage on the Page, Out of Bounds, Chariots of Form, Extreme Joywriting , Day Spa for the Soul and many more.
It may be that the satisfaction I need depends on my going away, so that when I’ve gone and come back, I’ll find it at home. ~ Rumi
