Generating Associative Verse

All Levels | How can we, as poets, access our subconscious minds—the land of dream where all that bizarre stuff surfaces? By reading Franz Wright, John Ashbery, Rae Armantrout, Sandor Csoori, and other poets whose work jumps and leaps, we’ll explore the process of writing associative verse. We will read abundantly, address prompts, and draft new poems to workshop and revise. The reception and articulation of what is perhaps any poet’s better half—his or her unconscious wishes and desires—will be our goal.
