Schooling the strange

GENRE: Poetry
-
The Hurst

“No surprise for the writer, no surprise for the reader,” wrote Robert Frost. How do we surprise ourselves in the writing of new poems, let in the super-real as well as honest feeling and thought? Looking at how we can use patterning and form to generate transformative ideas and juxtapositions, we’ll experiment with a variety of techniques to help give shape to the unexpected poem-within-the-poem during both early drafts and editing. We’ll focus on writing poetry as investigation and subversion while also exploring sound and the meaning of poetry.
