RANCHOS DE TAOS, NEW MEXICO
6TH ANNUAL SUMMER POEM-A-DAY WRITING WORKSHOP
- Dates: Friday, July 7 – Thursday, July 13, 2017
- Times: 10am-1pm
- Location: Ranchos de Taos, New Mexico
- Fee: $400
Description: We will meet each day to share poems written within the previous 24 hours. At our first meeting, participants do some wild & giddy writing toward the creation of a new poem. After that, participants will bring the first draft of a new poem to the workshop each day. At the end of each workshop participants will be provided with a magic packet to draw from, if they wish, for the inspiration of their next poem. Participants will be free to use the suggestions from the packets in whatever way they wish, or not at all. After responding to one another’s poems each day, we’ll engage in lively discussion in relation to poems included in the magic packets. At the end of our week together, we’ll gather for a meal to celebrate congratulate one another.
As part of this year’s weeklong adventure, special guest instructor, ROBIN SHAWVER, will discuss visual poetics with us one morning. Fun!
Each poet will be eligible for a 10 minute private session with Sawnie, during the week, to discuss their poems. Writers at all levels of writing experience are welcome.
To reserve a place in the workshop & for information about meals & lodging, please contact Sawnie.
