The Poetry of Spellcraft and Incantations: Using Poetics to Transform and Transcend

February 9 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

$100

By crafting language, poets “raise words beyond speech to create dream states and invoke apocalyptic forces and transcendent powers.” And in order to wield poetry’s full magical potential, we must be comfortable wielding its tools. Join us for a day-long workshop that explores devices like repetition, personification, rhyme, and ‘spell-like’ prosody, and also includes plenty of generative exercises divined both from poems and magical tools and talismans.

Aaron Deutsch received his MFA from Texas State University. His work appears in Willows Wept Review, the anthology Thirty Poems for the Tricentennial: A Poetic Legacy, and Scalawag Magazine (online). Aaron splits his time managing a team of teachers at the Defense Language Institute-English Language Center and teaching poetry workshops in San Antonio, TX.
