Poetic Dreamscape Odyssey with Stephen Jackman-Torkoff
To me a poem is not just a poem. It is an odyssey. and a line in a poem can be anything: a beautiful sentence, drinking a glass of water, the way we love someone, a fart etc etc etc. This is the basis of how I create. And I offer through this workshop insight into how to do this for yourself. I will present some of my own work and also lead participants through different creation/imagination exercises so that they can create their own odysseys. We will also do a group experiment together and end up with a multi person poetic dreamscape odyssey. At the end we will ask questions and we will talk. LONG LIVE THE IMAGINATION!
RSVP is required.
This is a virtual event on Zoom.
ASL will be provided at every workshop by Phoenix The Fire @phoenixthefire1111
