“the things themselves”: a Poetry Workshop to Support the IPRC

April 28 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm










“the things themselves”: poetry workshop

Workshop Description: “The most sensuous poets are the ones I trust the most,” says the poet Jorie Graham, citing the way that a word like “justice” can mean a thousand things to a thousand people while a word like “salt” has a much smaller range of possible associations. This workshop will focus our attention on the world of the senses and how our poems can sharpen and heighten the world’s sensorium, offering a shared subjectivity beyond one’s perceptual confines, a way to, together, engage with a larger aliveness. The title of this course is a line from a Lucille Clifton elegy. We’ll use this poem as a lens to consider the ways our socioecological elegiac moment is really an invitation to widened wonder and love.

Teaching Artist: Daniela Naomi Molnar
