Irreverent Joy and the Poetics of Resistance: A Generative Workshop (ZOOM) [Kendra DeColo]
This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.
All Levels | In difficult times we turn to poetry. Yet the writing of poems doesn’t have to be somber or serious. How can we cultivate a sense of joy, playfulness, and defiance in our practice? How do we write poems that give no f*cks while honoring what we love? We will explore new ways to celebrate our obsessions and speak truth to power while writing from a place of fearlessness and wonder. Time will be split between writing exercises and discussion of each other’s work. The goal is to leave workshop with new poems and a sense of freedom and possibility.
