POETRY OF PLACE

with R. FLOWERS RIVERA

 
 
Saturday, January 25, 2014 

12:30 - 4:30 PM

 

The Writer's Garret

10809 Garland Road, Dallas 75218

 

The landscapes of our minds inform how we imagine the world and provide the imagery we use to create poetry. Thus, poets often ground their work in a specific locale. A poet cannot stand apart from the land, observing, yet not being affected by its traditions, rituals, and symbols. Each landscape and its people affect the writer. Yet, akin to reading a difficult book, if the poet opens herself to a place, situates her imagination in a particular scene, she can unearth complicated secrets and inscribe them upon the page-a composition of proximity and exile. Memory and imagination.

 

"POETRY OF PLACE" is designed for ALL levels: to help poets familiarize themselves with lyrical, narrative, and formal approaches to setting and sensory placement, and to give writers of all genres the chance to understand the link between elevated language and chronological, historical, cultural, and physical place, and explore this interplay in greater depth.
