Winter Poetry Workshop
February 7, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$200
IPRC Creative Workshops for Winter 2021 will be held online via zoom, PST.
This is a workshop for all levels, whether you’ve just written your first poem or have been seriously writing for years. Each week, we’ll read and discuss one another’s work, emphasizing both craft (the shaping and forming of language) as well as the vision that’s unique to each individual. Our conversations will rest upon the assumption that there is no “correct” answer in art—that is, the thoughts and feelings that each piece of writing evokes will be a welcome part of the discussion. All aesthetics are welcome, experimentation is encouraged, and we will strive to meet each piece of writing on its own terms. Through engaging with one another’s work, we’ll dive deeper into our poetic processes, gaining fresh ideas for revision, inspiration for new poems, and a renewed enthusiasm for our creative practice. We will also read and discuss the work of a variety of contemporary poets, and conduct in-class writing exercises based on the readings.
