Renew (by Disrupting) Your Poetry Practice


**Please note all times are listed in EST**
 


“When water gets caught in habitual whirlpools, / dig a way out through the bottom / to the ocean,” Rumi counsels in his poem “The Worst Habit” (translated by Coleman Barks). Some habits move our lives forward; some keep us stuck in a pattern. Do you keep writing the same ol’ poem? Sure, the words are different, the subject matter is different, but what about your language usage, your poetic moves and strategies, your structure? Do you vary how you write? We will engage in inventive (but not gimmicky) exercises designed to disrupt our habitual ways of writing so we can generate poems that are revelatory—for the writer and the reader—in both content and form.
