Course Description:  Participants will “fall into a work of art” and begin poems which emerge from the work they are visualizing and come from their own personal experience. We will work with imagery which is the most translatable aspect of poetry; it is the universal language. Imagery shows first and then, with its literary statement implied inside, it tells.  There will be two periods of writing which are stimulated by a prompt and followed by discussion of each person’s work. In the workshop you will create a workable draft of a poem.

No Required Books

For the Workshop: Please bring paper and writing implements

Group Leader:  Eve Rifkah has an MFA in Writing from Vermont College of the Arts.  She has run many workshops in poetry writing over the years, the last in 2018 as part of the Stanley Kunitz Home summer writing program.  She was editor of Diner, a literary journal for seven years and taught English writing and literature on the college level.  She has many publications including two full length books of historical poetry and two chapbooks.

Course fee:  $25.00
