Emily Kendal Frey is offering an advanced poetry workshop this June at Literary Arts.
Writing From Dreams (Collaborating with the Hidden Mind)
Time: Saturdays, 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
4 weeks, June 15th – July 6th
Place: Literary Arts, 925 SW Washington
Class is limited to 10 students.
Course description: “A good poem draws on many resources, one of them being the unconscious. Poets will collaborate with their own unconscious mind to draw on various images, memories, and expectations. Investigative writing exercises will act as the catalyst to push our work to new places and create poems, perhaps related, that encapsulate this spirit of awakening.”
About the instructor: Emily Kendal Frey is the author of The Grief Performance (Cleveland
State University Poetry Center 2011), which won the Norma Farber First Book Award from the Poetry Society of America, and was also an Oregon Book Award finalist. She is also author of several chapbooks and chapbook collaborations, including Airport (Blue Hour 2009), Frances (Poor Claudia 2010), The New Planet (Mindmade Books 2010) and Baguette (Cash Machine 2013).
