Poetry Workshop with Cole Swensen
Happy to be attending this, hosted by The Capilano Review!
“This workshop, engaging both generative and reflective modes, will focus on two things: perception and the creative cycle. Considering poetry as a non-invasive tool of exploration that has particular access to the world’s subtle interstices, we will use various ekphrastic techniques to generate writing that we will then put through a series of response and redrafting stages in order to examine ways of working raw material into a finished piece.”
