Rebecca Morgan Frank THE ART OF GETTING UNSTUCK: WRITING YOUR WAY BACK INTO THE POEM – LIVE Poetry October 11 to October 15, 2021 Number of Participants: 12 Price: $575.00 Format: 1 Week - LIVE Zoom Workshop

LIVE via ZOOM: 7pm-9pm (Eastern)

Are you trying to find your way back to poetry after a long year or more of putting your creative work on the back burner? Or are you looking to take your work in new directions? Join us for a live generative workshop that will provide a virtual space for discovery and innovation: each day of this five-day class, you’ll be guided through a series of writing exercises ranging from journeys through real and imagined places to investigations of unexplored imagery, language, and creative resources. We will turn to first and final drafts by such poets as Elizabeth Bishop and Jericho Brown for insight as we explore writing from and through a wide range of writing we call “drafts.” Together we will write daily and share work through group workshops shaped to keep everyone writing, expanding, and revising. Participants can plan to walk away with a toolbox of new exercises and a handful of fresh drafts.
