Yoga with Words: The Energy of Syntax

“Poetry is language that sounds better and means more,” wrote Charles Wright. How do we transform the language we use for the everyday, into one that creates poetry? In this generative workshop, we will focus on a few rhetorical strategies, all on the level of syntax, that shake language out of its torpor. In poems, how you say something matters as much as what you say. After looking at several powerful examples, we will practice these new postures in our own writing by taking ordinary sentences and phrases and, in effect, turning them on their head. No mat required.
