Extra-Sensory Poetry [Sierra Nelson]
All Levels | Sensory detail is an integral part of poetry — but why stay limited to the classic human five? What if a poem perceived with eight eyes like a jumping spider, or drew synesthetic inspiration for touch and taste from an octopus or butterfly? How can Time as a sense inform our poetic structure? What new senses are available through dreams and hypnogogic states? This generative class of eclectic writing experiments will help you take your imagery and structures to new levels.
