Advanced Weeklong Poetry Workshop: Love Lab with Ariana Reines

$925.00 Members
$985.00 Non-members

In this workshop we'll learn how to seduce without lying, how to praise without cliché, and how to write longing without becoming a boring wastoid...at least not on paper! We'll do this by cutting into the genre of love poetry from three angles: Desire, Exaltation, and Despair.  We'll study a range of poems, from Archilochus & Sappho to Michael Ondaatje, Bernadette Mayer, Uche Nduka, Julian Talamantez Brolaski, Simone White, Sir Philip Sidney & more, alongside verse from sacred traditions--very often its own kind of love poetry--Hafez, Herbert, and the Song of Songs. Accepted participants will submit up to 3 poems by noon (MST) on May 18, and will have the opportunity to schedule a meeting with Reines during the week of class.

Applications for Lit Fest advanced workshops close on March 14 and can be found here. Learn more about Lit Fest Advanced Workshops here. Accepted writers will be given the password to register for the workshop in late March.
