Constructed as a conversation, each of three workshops will concentrate on the childhood of language, the poetry of language within childhood and the word-making, image-making inherent to every child’s ability to use and transform language as a means of discovering meaning.
Breton believed poetry was an energy capable of changing reality. From poets as diverse as Adrienne Rich, Russell Edson and Aime Cesaire, this seminar group will encounter language that seeks to recover the generative matter of poetry.
How we listen affects how we speak. How we see our language affects how our voice is heard. As poets we create our communication. This workshop will challenge participants to communicate with all their languages.
