2022 Summer Workshops

Robert Pinsky Imagination and Music August 13 to August 13, 2016 Tuition: $150 Workshop: 9AM-Noon Discipline: Poetry OPEN TO ALL On-site Housing NOT Available - Off-site Housing Options

In this one-session, generative workshop, we’ll use the music of syllables, words, sentences and lines to guide our imaginations, helping us to compose poems in class. You’ll then have the option of sharing your compositions aloud with this adventuresome, supportive group, in the spirit of improvisation.
