Event description

Description

Spontaneous Poetry will be fast, loud, and act as a creative spark to get the busy writer out of their own way. Utilizing poetic methods from poetry’s most innovative eras, the workshop will encourage direct observation, automatic writing, and a sense of play when looking at our results. Every participant should leave this workshop with a few poems in hand, and easy techniques to help surmount any challenges from too little time or too little inspiration. Writing should be exploratory, unpredictable. Using these techniques can help the writer step away from predetermined judgments of results, and allow more acceptance and pleasure from the writing we do with the little time we have.

About the Instructor: Chris Carson is a poet and journalist living in Washington DC. His long poem entitled Segue, about day dreaming and the Senate confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, is forthcoming by Blue Figure Press. He was previously publisher and editor of the experimental news and culture magazine, Keepeyes. His previous work has appeared in Flaunt Magazine, The Rumpus, and Otherwheres.

Scholarships are available for this workshop, along with alternate payment methods. To learn more, please visit MoonLitDC.com.
