The Aeolian Post Office: Notebooks, Letters, Transcriptions and Prose Poetry from the Everyday [Daniel Poppick]
At what point does great poetry end and daily life begin? What happens when we erase that line? In this generative workshop, we will explore traditionally “disposable” prose forms to find new ways of following the lyric impulses that operate constantly in our everyday lives. Taking inspiration from writings by Bashō, Dorothy Wordsworth, Jack Spicer, Alice Notley, and Khadijah Queen, we will use the language and rhythms that permeate our days—in our social relationships, rituals, communications, workplaces, and stray thoughts—as a springboard into an untapped realm of poetic making.
