IPRC: Winter Poetry Workshop

IPRC Creative Workshops for Winter 2021 will be held online via zoom, PST. Register here 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,…

Revision Strategies Workshop w Patrick Dundon

What do we do with a piece of writing that feels stuck, stagnant, that we want to transform? Revision can be difficult: we don’t want to lose the raw energy, the life-blood, of our original draft, yet sometimes we need to let go of our original ideas and inspiration in service of the poem or story. Too often revision is thought of as a process refinement and clarification, but revision literally means to “see again,” and in this class we’ll do just that: seeking out ways to enliven old drafts and see them from a fresh perspective, with a sense of curiosity and wonder. Through both in-class exercises and critique, we’ll explore a wide variety of revision strategies designed to bring our drafts to life…

Generative Exercises & Critique Workshop w Patrick Dundon

What makes a piece of writing come alive? What gives it emotional resonance, energy, and depth? How do we transform the raw material of our lives—our observations, memories, insights, dreams—into compelling poems, stories or essays that lure in a reader? In this class, we’ll dive into these questions, drawing inspiration from a diverse array of writers as we investigate the craft elements (image, narrative, syntax, metaphor, etc) that make a piece of writing vibrate with feeling and energy. And we’ll dive into our own work, immersing ourselves in our creative processes to find new doorways into ourselves and our writing. Whether you’re new to writing or have been at it for years, this class will provide you with a supportive, inspiring environment in which to…
