Celebrate the coming of autumn colors with an exploration of new ways of writing that join poetry with the visual arts. This workshop will take a dual approach: exploring the work of others and creating our own work. Participants will look at poetry that breaks with traditional forms and art that combines text and image. These models will provide frameworks for engaging in a number of poetry-making activities. Conversation will focus on what’s accomplished by innovation and how process both influences product and provides new ideas.
NOTE The workshop will include a lunch break from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. All attendees will be responsible for their own lunches.
