Place in Poetry: Gaining Good Ground [Tess Taylor]
All Levels | What is the role of place in poetry? How do poems invite us to attend? In this class, we’ll explore how poems help connect us to the places we live and call home, allowing us to more deeply root in our own lives. We’ll explore home dialects and locavore weathers, name flora and fauna, and examine unexpected micro-histories that help us connect to (and even repair) the world around us. Through generative exercises, we’ll draft our own place poems, and workshop them in a second session.
