This workshop will explore the poetry and poetics of food, culture, and the environment. Questions will guide our discussion: What do you eat? What are your food traditions? What are your familial, national, or ethnic customs? Where are you from? What is your relationship to the environment and other living beings? Based on prompts, we will free-write, draft, and share writing techniques and strategies for revision. Possible readings will include work by Camille Dungy, Robert Hass, Joy Harjo, Javier Huerta, and Patrick Rosal.

 

Register online, or call 414-263-5001.
