Poetry & Place at Buffalo Peaks Ranch

431

This workshop will focus on the significance of place in poetry. Place may be defined as a geographical location, an internal state, or perhaps a poetic meeting of the two. The workshop will center around how to structure and develop poems and the creative process that is involved. Jodie will share how she began writing poetry, as well as what writing habits have helped her writing process. She will go into what structure she uses when starting to write a piece, and use her own poetry as well as celebrated poets as examples.
