Explore reading and writing poetry as it relates to the mundane and peculiarly matter of fact. Consider how these approaches can offer accessibility and relatability to a poem. Please register.

In this workshop, we will explore reading and writing poetry as it relates to the particular, the mundane, and the peculiarly matter of fact. We will look at such approaches as launching points and how they can offer accessibility and reliability folks may not otherwise expect from poetry.
