This workshop is FREE and OPEN TO ALL. Registration is NOT required.
Collaborating in the creation of a poem connects us deeply with each other. The process is always full of surprises -- dynamic, inventive, and fun.
In collaboration, we get to see how people really understand our words. They take them up and go places with them, unexpected places! Through listening and responding, we open doors we didn't know were there: doors in our selves, in our perceptions, in each other.
This workshop engages participants in a variety of approaches to writing poems collaboratively.
Your workshop guides, Mary di Michele and Susan Gillis, have more than a decade of experience in writing poetry collaboratively. In addition to their active individual practices, they have written and published together as members of Yoko's Dogs since 2006. Susan's fourth book of poetry, Yellow Crane, appeared in 2018. Mary's twelfth book and latest collection of poetry, Bicycle Thieves, was published with ECW in 2017.
This event is taking place on the traditional and unceded territory of the Kanien’keha:ka.
The event will take place in a room accessed by stairs (our elevator is coming!).
