  • THE REALITY OF THE POEM: A WORKSHOP & CRAFT CLASS

    March 5, 2024

    Online only. More details: https://classroom.ruthstonehouse.org/product/the-reality-of-the-poem-a-workshop-craft-class/

    The aim of this workshop will be to reinvigorate the very foundations of our poetic voice, in tone, form and language—to the best of our abilities. Together we will challenge our ideas of the self and speaker in the poem, opening up new possibilities in our practice. We will look candidly at the so-called autobiographical in poetry, and how playfulness, imagination, dreaming, myth-making and world-building create a closer relation to the truth of our experience than “sticking to the facts” does. Each class will be a workshop discussion of one another’s poems. We’ll look for the most powerful lines to enhance, and where we’re fumbling and weakening. We will read supplementary handout materials between classes and examples of poets whose work inspires and guides us as writers. This will be a challenging but supporting workshop.

  • Beyond the Canvas: Expanding Ekphrasis

    March 23, 2024  1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

    Online/Virtual class. More details: https://classroom.ruthstonehouse.org/product/beyond-the-canvas-expanding-ekphrasis/

    Many beautiful poems have been written about paintings and photographs, but ekphrasis can encompass so many more types of media, like songs and television. In this generative writing and discussion class, we will discuss examples of ekphrastic poetry that go beyond the canvas before writing our own. Poems we discuss may include, but are not limited to, works by KB Brookins, Ocean Vuong, and K. Iver. Participants will be given prompts and writing time, with the opportunity to briefly discuss and share at the end of class.
