Poetry in Nature
May 23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Let’s take a tip from Mary Oliver and bring our pens and notebooks on a nature walk! In fact, bring your favorite nature poem, too, to share as we get started. In this workshop, we will closely examine the natural world, exploring all facets of growing things large and small, animate and inanimate, ugly or beautiful, and discover how those items link with our own sense of place in the world. We will work on crafting poems that do more than describe; we will use the natural world as a jumping off point to explore the wildness within us and turn that wildness into poetry.
