Finding Your Voice and Your Duende: Writing Poems of Love and Death with Sarah Arvio
Oct 12, 2019 | 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm$325
Six Saturdays, October 12–November 23
(skipping November 2)
What is the Lorcan notion of “duende”? Is duende a muse or inspiration? Is it the same as “voice”? In this workshop, we’ll think about what makes a poem move us—what gives it duende—and how to cultivate the voice as an expression of our particular selves, accessing experiences and emotions with techniques such as dream-thinking and thought-streaming.
