Wild Flowers: Exploding Summer Clichés

Are you sniffing hydrangeas, honeysuckle, jasmine, dahlias, roses, and hyssop, in your poems and on your walks? Do you want to reinvigorate your practice and write past clichés? In this generative class, we'll befriend summer flowers and experiment with floral prompts that channel unexpected imagery. We'll take inspiration from Dianne Seuss, Ada Limón, Paisley Rekdal, Ross Gay, Aimee Nezhukumatathil, and Jane Wong, among others. You'll leave with at least three new drafts and a handmade flower essence to savor the season's magic.
