How Not to Be Intimidated by Poetry (And Perhaps Write Some of Your Own)

How Not to Be Intimidated by Poetry (And Perhaps Write Some of Your Own)
Event on 2018-09-29 13:00:00
Instructor: Lisa Huffaker Tuition: Pay what you can ( suggested donation) Not a member of The Writer’s Garret? Join here. In this workshop, we will work together to demystify the various ways in which poets — and poems — create an aesthetic experience via careful, imaginative manipulations of language. We will read aloud individual poems by a diverse array of poets and discuss the various elements of poetic expression and how those elements make meaning. We will concentrate especially on the sensual or perceptible rather than cerebral qualities of each poem. We will pay special attention to "seeing poetry": the poem's arrangement on the page. Finally, we will apply what we have gleaned from our collective reading to a series of short creative writing exercises designed to encourage further appreciation of poetic language as an artistic medium. In an effort to make this workshop available to the widest possible audience,  this class is a "pay what you can" event. In order to best honor our instructor's time and effort, a donation is suggested. For questions regarding the venue, please call Deep Vellum Books at (972) 638-7741 or contact cristina@deepvellum.com. ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: Lisa Huffaker is a poet, musician, and visual artist. Her poems appear in Southwest Review, Poet Lore, Measure, Able Muse, Southern Humanities Review, and elsewhere. Her project, White Rock Zine Machine, offers tiny books by Dallas-area writers and artists, sold through whimsical vending machines. She is a classical singer by training, and sings with the Dallas Opera. She served as a Visiting Artist at the Dallas Museum of Art last summer, where her installation, Sound/re:Vision, invited visitors to interact with a music box Zine Machine, compose chance music, and create zines inspired by a playlist ranging from opera to gamelan.
