New Year’s Day

How is it almost 2014 already?

When the New Year rolls in, the Poetry Project‘s going to be the place to be for the 40th Annual New Year’s Day Marathon reading. More than 140 poets reading from 2pm on through the night. I’ll be on some time between 6 & 7 pm. See you there.

writing workshop

From October through December, I’ll be leading a writing workshop at the Poetry Project. Let’s write together!

I will be facilitating a writing workshop in which participants will delve into physical experience: writing through the senses — to create an embodied poetics and journey along a path toward a new body of work. Over the 10-week course we will incorporate/examine/manifest/experience Sight (visuals!), Sound (beats!), Taste (mad flavor!), Touch/Sensation, and Scent through writing exercises, readings and possibly field trips around the neighborhood. We do not subscribe to the notion that there are only five senses, but there are only 10 weeks in the course: at least a few sessions will be dedicated to an investigation of other, less familiar senses and what constitutes a sense. Make sense? One of the primary aims of the workshop is to kickstart the writing process– there will be a focus on generative writing exercises and collegial feedback.

Space is limited. Enrollment details here: http://poetryproject.org/get-involved/sign-up-for-workshops
