This workshop will focus on poems that use daily experiences as material. Whether it be an embrace with a partner in the morning, noticing a bee by the hydrangea, or whatever might have made us pause in our busy days, there is almost always something that we remember when we retire at night. Many poets, obviously, have used these everyday experiences as the subject for poems that have proved timeless. We will discuss examples of poems, generate our own material and writing, and ultimately examine how we might honor the mundane by crafting our language and engaging in discovery, layering of understanding of the subject. Our goal is simple: elevate ourselves through honest reflection in the hope of arriving at a truth organic.
