In Search of Magic
Diana Marie Delgado

Date: Saturday, October 26, 2019, 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Type: Generative Workshop, Workshop
Genre: Poetry

Powerful magic resides in language but what if we invoke that power further by adopting fantastical aspects into our own writing? In this three-hour workshop we will discuss Lucie Brock-Broido, Alice Notely and Marosa di Georgio, poets whose work occupy spaces of dread, astonishment—and magic. We will explore their use of symbols in haunted landscapes, their gestures to the unseen and discuss how by incorporating the supernatural, we might bypass the self, and tap into a vaster, more ancient consciousness.
