Threads of Influence & Homage: Embodied Poetics

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
In this workshop poets invite, trace and inscribe threads of enlivening influence. Which artists provide roots, architectures and constellations? What are our animating elemental permissions and how might we write through the ongoing conversations we have with our most resonant sources? How is literary inheritance: garment, house, vehicle, or breath? How do sound, presence, ritual and ethos translate into poetic practices, structures and aspirations of the present moment? Participants will explore how our work is already in correspondence with our most potentially transformative sources, and we might heighten and illuminate these ongoing relationships in our writing.
