In this intensive, encouraging workshop, you will learn how any poem can be used as a road map to a new poem. You will examine pieces (by Kay Ryan, Mary Oliver, Gregory Orr, Ellen Bass, Mary Rueffle, Pablo Neruda, Henri Cole, Eduardo Corral and others) that will guide you in composing poems that begin with a specific word, image or concept and suggest stops, starts and turns you might take to get to undiscovered territory. You will return from this poetic journey with a discovered truth or two that you didn’t know you knew. You will have time to share your new writing, but the focus of the workshop will be on motivating you to create at least four new poems. All writers—novice day-trippers and seasoned trekkers—welcome.
