Living the Dream: A Poetry Workshop with Fred Marchant
July 19, 2020 @ 6:00 pm – July 24, 2020 @ 1:00 pm
In this one week intensive and generative workshop we will examine, discuss, and practice bringing the energies of dreams to our poetry and vice-versa. There will be craft-lectures on dream-images, dream-stories, nightmares, visions, and visitations. We will also read and discuss dream-related poems by writers ranging from the ancients to our contemporaries, and there will be writing prompts based on those readings and discussions. The goal each day (and night) will be to write new poems or revise older ones that draw upon the untapped imaginative and linguistic energies we often find in our dreams.
