    About the Series

    This winter, at a time when, for many of us, so much of the natural world seems asleep, we’ll keep our inner fires going by exploring how the voices of nature weave with our own daily lives. Each week, Danusha and James will share work by our guests, including poems and prompts, and together we’ll absorb the wisdom of visionaries, poets and healers to bring ourselves more deeply into relationship with each other and with the power and beauty of this rich planet we share.

    Details

    Beginning on February 4th, sessions will be held on Fridays from 10am-12pm PST / 1-3pm EST.  Kimberly Blaeser's session will be on February 25th.

    Each session will begin with a talk with that week’s featured poet, followed by a discussion with Danusha and James, who will read poems, offer gateways into accessing your own creative treasure troves, and share accompanying prompts. For the last half hour of each class, they will answer questions from participants, and give further insights into the practice of poetry.

    Before each session, a document with the poems and prompts that will be shared and discussed, will be provided to participants.

    The series will be presented on Zoom. Video and audio recordings will be available to all participants within 48 hours of each session, and for two months after the course ends. Closed captioning will be available during live sessions and in video recordings.

    Please join us for the journey!

    The cost of the course is $300.

    The Craft of Writing Poetry: Poetry of Place in a Pandemic World

    6:30-8:00pm CSTOnline

    In our sheltering during the coronavirus, place has taken on greater significance. This workshop looks at the character of places, public and private, and how we as poets might represent their changing dynamics. Whether writing of distance and absence, of sites of resistance, or more intimately of nature or family spaces, the subjects and methods or our poetry involve new challenges. This workshop will use prompts and exercises to encourage a deeper gathering of materials for writing place and will offer comments on and illustrations of significant craft elements.
