ENG-3900N: Poetry & Dreaming

This workshop investigates the aesthetic intersection between poetry and dreaming. We will explore the rich territory of ideas, people, places, and emotions living in our dreams, and consider how we can tap into that world to create art. We will examine how dreams can inform and affect our writing, inspiring surprising scenes, and providing us with a window into our subconscious. Students will learn how to ?steal? from their dreams to create fresh, delightful, imaginative work. The day will be a mixture of lecture, reading classical and contemporary poetry based on dreams, analyzing poetry and its use of dreams, hearing the dreams of students, practicing the writing tips and methods offered in class, and finally molding our dreams into poems. Although geared for poets and writers, this workshop will also be of value to non-writers by showing how we can capture and utilize details and knowledge from our subconscious to use as inspiration no matter what our discipline.
