Mark Wunderlich

Toward a Daily Practice of Poetry

Engaging in a daily practice of reading and writing poetry can transform the psyche and lead writers to surprising and unexpected new work.  In this three-hour generative workshop, we will explore a series of approaches, practices and exercises that move you from silence and the blank page, to a lifetime of engagement with language that is expansive, nurturing and surprising.  We will look at innovative practices that involve visual work, artists’ notebooks, found poems, experimental translation, and epistolary exchanges that are all meant to help you reimagine your approaches to writing poems, and even to what we think a poem might be. We will write together, read together, and explore the ways in which we can place poetry at the center of a life of writing.

3 hours on Wednesday  |  July 19  |  6-9 pm ET  |  $120 ($96 for Members)

All are welcome, space is limited. A limited number of need-based scholarships are available. Please email with any questions.
