The Exploration and Exploitation of Poetic Bodies
Maritza N Estrada, Erin Noehre

Saturday, February 23, 2019, 10:15 a.m. - 11:15 a.m.
Location: Tooker, Old Main
Type: Craft Talk, Generative Workshop, Workshop
Genre: Mixed Genre, Poetry

In this session, we will dive into a deeper understanding of the poetic and imagined body by looking deeper into our own definitions of exploitation and exploration. Part of the session will press on language often used in connection to the body to explore the presence of emotion internally and how that may manifest externally. We will try to focus on the visualization of the poetic body and discuss its formation in poems from the perspectives of different writers.
