Poetry is happening all the time, all around us. It exists on billboards, on the inside covers of magazines, in overheard and out of context conversations. But unfortunately in our rush to get to our next appointments, and the distractions of our own barrage of text messages and incoming calls, we miss them. In this workshop we will seek to find, uncover and bring to light the hidden poetry from some unexpected places like: science textbooks, political speeches, pop music, Yelp reviews, graffiti, etc. Incorporating new vocabularies, different voices
and styles, we place ourselves into situations weve never experienced, try to make sense out of dynamics that baffle us or maybe try desperately to get out of. We will shift between both treated and un-treated found poems and engage in Frankensteining pieces of text together, and even add in our own unpredictable, inspired words to the mix. This workshop is open to writers of all abilities. Please bring writing materials.
