Poetry Workshop with Tracie Morris

Don’t miss this very special Text Kitchen workshop, around a single table, surrounded by John Ashbery ephemera.

In this intimate in-person workshop, we will look at ways in which technique helps us to see the distinction between the poem subject and the heart of the matter. Sometimes these are the same thing in a poem, sometimes they’re not. Either way we can fine-tune our understanding of the different roles each plays. We’ll look at visual, musical and conceptual poetry approaches to explore, write and edit central themes in our work, emphasizing the short form.
