We create our own communication. How we listen affects how we speak. How we see our language affects how our voice is heard. Where the senses meet each other is where poetry can begin. Is it possible to allow the body its place in writing? Using exercises of space, sound, performance, theater, collage, and page, as a guide, this workshop will be a creative laboratory that explores how we communicate by exercising the languages inside us. Over six weeks, work will be created, discarded, and renewed in an active writing workshop where movement ignites the process.
Edwin Torres is the author of six full-length books, most recently Ameriscopia and One Night: Poems For The Sleepy, four chapbooks and three CDs. His work appears in many anthologies, including Postmodern American Poetry Vol. 2, and Aloud: Voices From The Nuyorican Poets Cafe. Forthcoming this Spring is ePOWM!, an eBook.
