Hunting the Song, Hurting the Song: A Poetry Workshop [Hoa Nguyen]
We will court duende to find that place where “forms fuse together.” We will utilize music and deep listening, trance work, Oulipo and surrealist techniques, mandala drawing, creative borrowing, the symbols of dreams, tarot, myth, and fairy tales to employ modes or invite portals into enhanced receptivity. We will close with an intensive rewrite and revision component. This workshop is designed to get us writing from many departure points as well as provide ideas to keep writing—ones that can be used time and again. Come fortified and ready with a notebook and pen.
