Aug 28 – Organic Poetry Workshop for 7.0 CTE’s!

Organic Poetry is one way to make composition an occasion of experience. This entertaining workshop for serious writers of all levels of experience includes lively discussions, sound from interviews with poets and simple writing techniques which can be used in many settings.

Who are you now and who are you becoming? To what do you train your attention? Organic Poetry is one way to describe the process of training your ear to capture the chaotic energy of the moment, to make composition an occasion of experience. This entertaining workshop for serious writers of all levels of experience includes lively discussions and sound from interviews with poets McClure, Myles, Rothenberg, Ginsberg, Waldman. Through a series of intensifying creative writing exercises over the day, you will develop an understanding of your own personal mythology and write at that deeper level of consciousness.

Saturday, August 28, 2010, 9:30 – 5:30, in Bellevue (of all places!)
