Salvage & Adventure: Poetic Play, Remix, Erase, Collage and Assemble! FILLING

Limited Capacity filling up

You may think of a poem as a monster of its own making, but poems are often many-headed conversations with others. This generative poetry workshop will utilize the historical and artistic space of the Peabody Essex Museum as a site of inquiry. We will respond to what can be found in the environs (ekphrastic, historic, story) and explore what we can uncover when we use remix, erasure, collage and assemblage in our work as creative strategies. We will write and risk together in community!
