Saturday, February 13
Well, while I'm here I'll
do the work –
and what's the work?
to ease the pain of living.
Everything else, drunken
Allen Ginsberg, “Memory Gardens”
Why do we write? What is the poet’s place in the world? What can we do to increase our ability to inspire and provoke with our words? How do we integrate our compulsion to create into our everyday lives? These and other questions and will be addressed in The Work, a new workshop facilitated by Christopher Luna. Join us tomorrow, Saturday, February 13 at Angst Gallery to listen to, discuss, and write poetry. The cost is $20. Register now by contacting Christopher Luna at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-910-1066. The Work begins Saturday, January 9, 2010 and continues on February 13, and March 13.
Last month we discussed ars poetica, and tried to write our own. We also agreed to write a poem in the form of a letter to someone telling that person something we have always wanted to tell them, but couldn't.
Please also bring examples of your favorite love poems, as we will be discussing the challenge of writing about this most important subject.
