For the Fun of It: Poetry Playshop & Performance
Rosemerry travels to Morgan Community College for a day and evening of poetry play.
That’s right. Writing for pleasure. Finding rules and breaking them. Of course, poetry can be serious—can be dissected and criticized and exegesis-ized. But poetry is also a playground for exploring what it means to be alive; and play is a secret weapon for meeting failure, vulnerability, uncertainty and humility. Play helps us fall in love with the world, and with words, too. We’ll read poems that make us laugh, shake our heads, open our hearts and show up, and then in that vein, we’ll write. Gravity, of course, is also invited. There’s always a dark underbelly. Let’s tickle it.
