Intertextual & Visual Poetry Workshop

Many of us turn to poetry to explore the complications of life, language, and emotion. But what happens when we can’t find the right words to capture the complex energy of a mood or moment? In this workshop, we’ll consider how incorporating visual art and other texts can add texture and tactility to our work. Through erasure, palimpsest, and visual poetry, we’ll map out the potential of the page and discover how much more dynamic our ideas become when in conversation with others. In addition to guided writing prompts, we’ll read and discuss successful intertextual and visual/hybrid poems for inspiration. Ideal for poets at all stages and particularly useful for discovering new ways into a subject or teasing out new lines of thought.
