We’ll look at poems, techniques, practices and perspectives to open up to different ways of handling these four elements–how to get their magic, tell their truth, and make our poems come alive. We’ll cover time travel, making space, the uses of memory, and thinking/feeling through the senses. For practicing poets (beginners as well as established) or devoted readers of poetry.

Note: Brenda Shaughnessy is also teaching a master class at Literary Arts on Thursday, November 7.
