"Poetry is a life-cherishing force. For poems are not words, after all, but fires for the cold, ropes let down to the lost, something as necessary as bread in the pockets of the hungry. Yes indeed."
Tuesday Evening Poetry Workshop with Dawn 5 Tuesday EveningsMay 23 - June 207:00-9:00pm$150Location: West Slope/Raleigh Hills Area, SW Portland
Poetry is the unexpected, sublime union of the literal and the metaphorical, of imagination and fact. We are in dire need of poetry. Poetry allows us to enter the living pulse of a moment, to deeply connect with our felt experience. It supports us in becoming more intimate with our life and with the world. Come sculpt word combinations in new ways to capture an ordinary moment, an extraordinary story. In inspiring community, we'll practice the fine art of distilling language to reveal the heart of a story.
