Generating Associative Verse [Janee Baugher]
All Levels | How can we, as poets, access our subconscious minds—the land of dream where all that bizarre stuff surfaces? Through reading Edith Södergran, John Ashbery, Franz Wright, and other poets whose work jumps and leaps, we’ll explore the process of writing associative verse. We will address repression and generate poems to workshop and revise. Class includes prompts and strategies for enabling the articulation of what is perhaps any poet’s better half: his or her unconscious wishes and desires.
