Sense, Vision, Insight, Form: A Poetry Workshop
Instructor: Andrew Singer

This workshop takes place at Bowery Poetry Club on the following Sundays from 12PM-2PM

April 29
May 6
May 13

This workshop helps participants unlock and better realize their full poetic potential. In four carefully-detailed stages, a unique and elegant set of tools, techniques, examples and poetic understandings are presented and practiced. Group and at-home exercises further facilitate quickly reaching a new level of poetic connection and achievement. No prior experience or preparation is needed for this workshop.

"Andrew's poetry workshop was a master-class in immediacy. It introduced us to a way of observing / writing that pushed us beyond preconceptions and habitual responses into the living essence of the moment". ~ Kathy Tiernan, Author

"I felt inspired by being asked not only to describe a subject strictly faithfully, but wait till it 'speaks' and tells us about itself. Singer's unique method of poetry teaching fits so well with both Ben Okri's vision of the academies of the future in his 'Plato's Dream', and with neuroscientist Ian McGilchrist's emphasis of the incomparable importance of the right hemisphere in his groundbreaking book, 'The Master and his Emissary'. I look forward to the next masterclass with Andrew"! ~ Narda Azaria Dalgleish, Experimental filmmaker, Poet

The instructor, Andrew Singer, has an MA in Creative Writing (Poetry) from Boston University, where his thesis supervisors were Nobel Laureate poet Derek Walcott, and twice Poet Laureate of the United States Robert Pinsky. Mr. Singer served as a first reader for poetry for the former Partisan Review, and is founding director and editor-in-chief of Trafika Europe, showcasing some of the best new literature from the 47 Council of Europe countries in English translation. He currently also teaches workshops and courses in creative writing, literary translation, and European literatures at Penn State University. A former cultural radio and television producer and host, he has given hundreds of talks, workshops, and hosted presentations in more than a half-dozen European countries, including extensive university teaching in poetry and literary translation for graduate students in Central Europe. He is widely published as a poet and literary critic  and believes all things begin and end in wonder.
