Title: On Dailiness & The Committed Practice: A Poetry Workshop with Damian Rogers
Date: December 17, 2015
Location: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Description: This is a four-week intensive poetry workshop for those looking to reinvigorate their writing practices. Each class will include readings, discussion, and generative exercises. We will explore multiple ways to stimulate the shifts in consciousness necessary to increase creative productivity. Though the primary focus will be on poetry, hybrid texts will also be examined and writers working in all genres are invited to join. Authors studied in this month-long course include Bernadette Mayer, Alice Notley, Charles Baudelaire, Robert Creeley, Claudia Rankine, Hoa Nguyen, Joe Brainard, Anne Carson, Lynda Barry, Rachel Zucker, and more. Participants will finish the class with a packet of new material, feedback on their work, clearly defined individual goals, and an arsenal of tools to keep going.
