About the Class
The daily grind of our busy lives sometimes makes us feel like we are cell phones charged at only 3%—perilously low-energy, uninspired devices. This is particularly alarming for writers when the feeling manifests itself as writer’s block or anxiety that your poems have grown lackluster. In this workshop, we will try out a wonderful slew of new techniques to tap the rich resources of inspiration waiting inside us and outside in our everyday world. We will read and write poems in class and at home, take and share cell phone photos, and respond creatively to each other’s work. The goal of the class is to feel lit-electrified and yet well-grounded by our writing practice—to be a 103%-charged poet and human being.
