Spells to create transformative poems
Alchemy, the ancient craft in which practitioners transform something of little worth into gold, is comparable to the craft of writing. This workshop is designed to activate the human imagination and invites participants to transform how they view and practice language.
This series begins by exploring writing technology and equips writers with the spells to create transformative poems that build human connections through vulnerability.
In this course, students can expect to develop an idea into a complete poem, explore the craft of editing, and learn how to use a poem as a tool for personal transformation.
