Workshop: Music and Food in Poetry with Catherine Strisik

Mondays 6-8:30 p.m. Starts April 8th. Seven-week generative poetry workshop exploring music, food and relationships to family, culture and earth.

Deadline: April 8, 2019

Music and Food in Poetry

Over the course of this seven-week poetry workshop, we will discover the landscape of camouflaged music in poetry, and explore through food in poetry, our relationships to family, culture, and earth.

This workshop will explore the variations of how poetic forms describe and express. The workshop will be a generative one, as well as emphasizing craft, and specific and careful word choices, and how and why poetry elicits reactions.

My wish is to meet you wherever you are as a poet, and guide towards writing more finished poems, therefore inviting you even more so into this community of poets.
