Outsiders, rebels, and weirdos, be aware: there’s a poetry workshop for you. In this workshop, we will investigate escapism and alternative universes in the context of poets and artists. We will generate and workshop poems inspired by our forays into pop culture, film, literature, and contemporary art, as well as respond to our favorite nerdy topics in a radical new ekphrasis. Don’t be afraid to reveal your inner Craysian in this poetry workshop designed to shake loose your nerdy, alternative, kooky side — we will work on taking risks, and helping each other take risks as well!
