In the Cards: A Generative Poetry/Tarot Workshop
$30, Email here to reserve your spot!
Image, insight, archetype. Your Tarot deck may provide guidance, but how can you use the deck to generate or revise your poems? I will give a brief introduction of Tarot for newcomers and provide examples of a couple spreads. We’ll read and discuss a few famously Tarot-inspired poems, and I'll describe the process I've been using the past couple years. After that, we’ll generate work using the cards. Please feel free to bring your own deck if you’ve got one!
6 Thursdays: July 9th-August 13th, 6:30-8:30pm
$180, Fills quickly! Contact me here to reserve your spot!
I run this very small private workshop for intermediate to advanced writers who are interested in blurred genres or in crossing genre (from poetry to prose or vice versa). We'll focus on writers who make it seem effortless: Claudia Rankine, Brian Blanchfield, Eleni Sikelianos, Bhanu Kapil, and Anne Carson, for example. For six 2-hour sessions, we'll read and discuss prose, poetry, and hybrid texts by one or two authors each week, I'll give a mini craft talk, and we'll generate writing based on prompts. You'll go home with enough inspiration and supplemental prompts to keep you going long after the course ends.
