Naked Poetry: Finding the Courage to See Ourselves [Major Jackson]
All Levels | This exploratory, generative poetry workshop is designed to highlight the severe and beautiful truths of our lives and where in language we strike our greatest freedom. Based in the belief that poems that are pure, honest, and courageous in saying the unsayable get us closer to the highest reaches of human song, workshop participants will learn techniques of writing poetry that stress tapping the unconscious and facing our fears while nominally addressing form as a doorway into the mysteries that make up our lyric selves.
