One of the creative acts of writing poetry is assuming a voice—whether it’s your own or that of a persona. In this workshop we’ll write poems in the form of letters and postcards from numerous voices to discover just what there is to say—and to whom or what. Delving deep into our imaginations, we’ll strike up a correspondence—whether to a person, animal, object, or place—to arrive at the emotional center of the poem. The class will include writing activities and handouts of published poems, such as Jane Springer’s “Dear Blackbird” and Wyn Cooper’s “Postcard from the Party.”
Lunch can be purchased at a nearby deli, or bring your own.
