Cultivate your own flourishing garden
Starting February 2
- Tuesdays @ 7:00 pm PST
- Feb 2, Feb 9, Feb 16, Feb 23
Details are the blooming flowers in the garden of memory. But what about what we forget? What exists in the blur of time? Often, what we have lost contributes to the soil that allows everything else to grow.
In this workshop, we’ll explore the specificity of forgetfulness by utilizing all that we remember – and all that we don’t – to build a poem out of details so individual they’ll become universal.
No prior poetry experience necessary; this is a workshop for all skill levels. I want to help uncover the tools you already have, and assist you in cultivating your own flourishing garden.
