ENG-3900BN: Poetry & Memory

This workshop provides an opportunity to mine our memories to awaken new, startling poems. We will explore the rich territory of ideas, people, places, and emotions from our past, and examine how memory can inform and affect our writing. Students will learn how to dig into memories from the span of their lives and will see how uncovering one memory often leads to another and another, creating fresh, imaginative work that surprises both the writer and reader. The day will be a mixture of lecture, reading classical and contemporary poetry based on poets’ memories, and practicing fever writing or automatic writing, tapping into our memories and the subconscious and reading aloud to the class. Although geared for poets and writers, this workshop will also be of value to non-writers, particularly students studying psychology, by showing how we can capture and utilize details from our memories to use as inspiration no matter what our discipline.
