This is a 5-day workshop, running from July 31-August 2nd, and requires pre-registration.

Poetry is no short form for sending messages; it’s a language ‘entire unto itself’. We might say that it’s the language of mystery, the language for expressing the inexpressible. It seems as though there is a moment in life when a person is ready to immerse in such a language. That might come in childhood, but frequently it’s later in life when there is a readiness for this other way of speaking and seeing how things are. Come for these five mornings (it takes that kind of time) and be part of a five-morning community of poetry explorers. In the safety of such a group, we will read poetry, feel its effect, and speak together about all that it evokes in us and, perhaps, even write some. Are you ready?
