You Are Here: Poems of Place with KC Trommer
Oct 5, 2019 | 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm$95
What do time and place have to teach us? This generative workshop aims to use participants’ personal geographies—inherited as well as chosen—to create work that examines one’s own place in the world. Class discussion will consider modern and contemporary poets—including W. S. Merwin, Frank O’Hara, Heather McHugh, Joy Harjo, Rosebud Ben-Oni, and others—to learn from these poets’ visual and narrative mapping.
KC Trommer is the author of We Call Them Beautiful. She has taught writing at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor; Bard High School Early College; and the University of Pennsylvania.
