Summer Workshop Program 2023
Wonder. Wander. A naturalist’s attention to the world can enhance any writer’s eye for detail. This poetry workshop is geared toward increasing our capacity to experience and express wonderment through the rich intersections of observation, knowledge, movement, and memory. We will wander toward wonder through readings, natural history focused walks, writing assignments, and conversations. Expect to spend time each day outside, in all weathers (hats, sunscreen, water, insect repellent). We can adjust our destinations based on desire and mobility.
Elizabeth Bradfield designs most of the work published by Broadsided Press. She launched the journal in 2005 and continues to be fascinated by how poetry and art, together, can amplify each other and reach new audiences. Author of five collections of poetry, she has co-edited Broadsided Press: Fifteen Years of Poetic/Artistic Collaboration, 2005-2020 and Cascadia Field Guide: Art, Ecology, Poetry. Her poems have appeared in The New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly, Poetry, The Sun, and her honors include the Audre Lorde Prize and a Stegner Fellowship. Based on Cape Cod, Bradfield works as a naturalist and teaches at Brandeis University.
