To Wander and Wonder: Writing the Earthscape Electric
Lony Haley-Nelson notes: “Wonder is valuable…because it leads us to learn and remember.” With this quote in mind, this workshop will provide students with rich explorations of the craft of poetry. Using the vocabulary of myth, folklore, science, and natural history as inspiration, this generative workshop will help you jump-start the blank page in front of you. You’ll be introduced to several ideas for poems and journaling (some outdoors, weather permitting) to help you find new ways to revitalize your writing. Our time will be divided into composing drafts; chatting about poems that encapsulate a sense of wonder; and sharing your own poems in a workshop format.
