Aligning Structure in Ecopoetics

Saturday, February 14, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. (with a lunch break)
Tuition: $75

Ecopoetry incorporates aspects of ecology into poetic practice.  In particular, through both content and form, ecopoetry often examines the relationship between built and natural environments. In this experimental workshop, students will explore the idea of “eco-architecture” as it applies to a poem’s form and shape. The workshop will especially consider how an attentive experience of place and space affects our sense of that place, and explore how that sense can be recreated in poetry.
