Poetry Workshops with Creative Assembly Cohort Member Daniel Fitzpatrick

Wed, January 10th at 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

This three-week series of workshops hosted by Creative Assembly Cohort member Daniel Fitzpatrick aims to give poets of all ages and experience levels the space to write. In NOMA’s permanent collection galleries, participants will explore a few techniques that can help to cultivate a habit of poetry and jumpstart new writing. Participants will also discuss ways that visual art can help to understand different approaches to poetry, and how the space between images and words can open windows into the self. 

Participants are invited to attend all three sessions or to select one or two of special interest, based on the themes below. Notebooks and pencils, along with reading material tailored to each session, will be provided. All poets will have the opportunity to receive feedback on their work in a supportive group setting or on an individual basis.

Advance registration is required.

Week One January 10: Poetry as Listening

Discuss poetry as a way of listening—to nature, to the divine, to our own bodies, memories, and emotions—and think about how visual art can cultivate a poetic habit of listening.

Week Two January 17: Poetry as Lens, Poetry as Mirror 

Learn different approaches to poems as fashioned objects. How can language become a window to a world beyond itself? How can language itself be the object of poetic experience?

Week Three January 24: Metaphor as Guide

Explore ways that metaphors our minds suggest can help get to the emotional core of experience and guide the drafting and re-drafting process.
