    Poetry Workshop with Alexis Orgera: Writing the Body

    April 11, 2020@2:00 pm-5:00 pm


    This workshop is aimed at helping poets navigate memory and the senses.

    Writing the Body: “This is a generative poetry workshop aimed at exploring and producing poems grounded in the body (or the physical experience). Memory is often bodily and can propel us into poems: the way your mother’s hands rested on the steering wheel of the Oldsmobile, the slimy skin of a baby born in the backseat of a taxi, the dislocated shoulder that changed the course of a football player’s life. We all have stories to tell about the body. We’ll read and discuss a variety of contemporary examples and find new ways into poems through prompts that incorporate gallery paintings, sensory objects, and language games.”
