Meditative Expectancy: Poetry as Daily Practice [Mark Wunderlich]
Intermediate | How do we change when we write every day? How do we train the mind to make associations more quickly, to render our subjectivity into language with greater ease and fluidity? In this class, we will come together each week after having completed a series of exercises meant to deepen our connection to lyrical and heightened language and to our reading life. While the workshop portion of the class will be comprised of traditional group discussion and critique, there will be a weekly craft talk and assignment meant to provide ongoing strategies for getting poems started and keeping them going through a defined, rigorous daily writing practice.
