Vulnerability and Intimacy with the Self in Poetry with Bo Hee Moon
Saturday, December 2nd
10 AM – 1 PM PST / 1 – 4 PM EST
In this generative workshop, we will practice nurturing a sense of vulnerability and intimacy with the self through a series of writing exercises. As an inclusive writing community, we will create a space devoted to opening to the richness of our perspectives and unique voices. We will explore questions intended to inspire reflection and creativity. What does being vulnerable in poetry look like? What is the value of being vulnerable in our poetry? In a world where there is tremendous joy and grief, how do poets relate to their inner landscapes in an intimate way that enhances their poetry? We will read poetry by Cathy Linh Che, Natalie Diaz, Donika Kelly, Li-Young Lee, Ada Limón, Ocean Vuong, Jane Wong, and Matthew Zapruder. All levels are welcome to attend. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to read their poetry with our workshop, and this will be completely optional.
The scholarship for this intensive has already been awarded.
