The Geography of the Poem—An Exploration of the Physical Terrain of Contemporary Poetry

August 3 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$100

Poetry Workshop with Alexandra van de Kamp

This two-session class will take a deep dive into how poets sculpt their poems. How are contemporary poets expanding the geography of their poems and reveling in the physical terrain a poem can create. How can line breaks build energy and suspense in your poems? Can playing with syntax nurture a sense of mischief in your writing process? All in all, through close readings and prompts, you’ll walk away with drafts of new work.

 

Alexandra van de Kamp is the Executive Director of Gemini Ink and teaches poetry workshops with The Poetry Barn. She is the author of two collections of poems, Kiss/Hierarchy and The Park of Upside-Down Chairs, and several chapbooks, including Dear Jean Seberg and A Liquid Bird Inside the Night

Saturday, August 3 & 10, 1-4pm at the Gemini Ink Offices
