Remote 3-Hour Workshop: Joseph Stanton: Nature Poetry

Saturday, Sep 30 & Sunday, Oct 1  |  5-6:30pm ET 

Sep 30, 2023 | 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

$84.00 – $105.00

Nature Poetry

Learn strategies for writing poems inspired by landscapes in the natural world. Stanton offers prompts that derive from his experiences writing A Field Guide to the Wildlife of Suburban O‘ahu (Time Being Books, 2006) and Prevailing Winds (Shanti Arts, 2022), as well as nature-inspired poems by other writers. The workshop encourages participants to share their personal experiences with nature and poetry. Stanton’s class invites participants to write under the influence of flora and fauna, but each poet will ultimately determine where the poem needs to go.
