Date(s): Tuesdays, June 18 - 25, 2019, 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Location: Piper Writers House, 450 E Tyler Mall, Tempe, AZ 85281
Type(s): Workshop, Generative Workshop
Genre and Form(s): Flash, Poetry, Spiritual Writing
In this generative workshop will explore the ways poets have used the epistolary form to scatter grief to the heavens to relieve the pressure of pain that may have grown anger, resentment, and bitterness within us. The “god” here is not a religious god, but instead any figure, creature, or higher power we feel is a possible arch to throw our bereavement over. In this two-part workshop, we’ll discuss a few poems that use this form and examine how they use language to connect our bodies to grief. Then we will do some generative exercises and meet again to discuss how the process went for us and read each other's work to provide feedback.
