The Poetry Project


Our Only Allegiance is to Each Other — Workshop with TC Tolbert

This generative and collaborative workshop is primarily a space to practice listening, choice-making, responding, and revising, on and off the page. We will use text, movement, sound, and experiences in our own bodies to follow personal and collective impulses. We will discuss and practice traditional and emerging poetic forms to expand our creative range as individuals and as a physically-distant but connected assemblage. By trusting what we already know and moving into a place of experiment (where learning happens!), we will attend to what arrives and learn more about the poetic impact of each choice. No movement experience necessary. Expect to write, listen, stretch, laugh, and be moved. All are welcomed and encouraged!
