Inspired by Research: From Sources to Poems

Sun, 5 Mar, 2017 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

How do poets use the techniques of historians and journalists to develop great poems? We will look at model poems to uncover the different methods that poets have used to transform source materials into poetry. Historic records, family documents, case studies, photographs, and interviews are just some of the materials poets have incorporated into poems. Bring some intriguing documents, texts, or photos of your own, and we will practice different strategies for presenting these materials in poetic form. Participants will learn new approaches to using resource materials that can deepen and expand the range of their poetry. Following the class at 2 P.M. Jeanne will be reading at The Writer’s Center’s Open Door Reading Series which is free to the public.
