POETRY AS SOUL: A WRITING WORKSHOP with Hermine Meinhard, New York Writers Workshop
December 1, 2018
2:00-5:00 pm

Poems are gateways to the soul. As readers, we are returned to the mystery and beauty of our lives through the poets experience, captured in image, music and line. We also find mirrors of our own struggles.  As writers, how do we find our way to the richness of language and experiences from which poems come?

In this workshop we will experiment with the everyday, with memory, dream, evocative language, objects and artworks as pathways into making poems. Through playfully quiet exercises, and a supportive, stimulating community, you will engage in writing as an act of discovery from which a richness of poetry and transformation comes. The workshop is multi-generational, multi-level and welcoming to both beginners and experienced.

Hermine Meinhard's book Bright Turquoise Umbrella, published by Tupelo Press, was a finalist for the Poetry Society of America's Norma Farber First Book Award. Her poems have appeared in American Letters & Commentary, Barrow Street, Drunken Boat and Verse Daily among other publications and aired on public radio. She has read her work at venues such as Live at Prairie Lights Bookstore, Hudson Valley Writers Center, the Kitchen, KGB Bar, Cornelia Street Café and the Bowery Poetry Club, and has been interviewed and profiled by the online journals Margin and Chicago Post Modern Poetry. Meinhard teaches at NYU and is a founding member of New York Writers Workshop. She has an MFA in poetry from Sarah Lawrence College.
