Poet Tea: Making and Writing about Tea

Join us for an interactive, generative poetry workshop all about tea! Teamaking, like writing, is a cultural activity that emphasizes ritual and sensory experience. In this three-hour class, we will consider poems (such as Leila Chatti’s "Tea") at the intersections of these themes as well as engage in a series of generative writing prompts to explore image, memory, culture, and narrative. Participants need only bring their love of poetry and favorite tea along with them for an interactive experience.
