Your Best Beach Body
Where in your body do you house longing? Where does surprise live? Tenderness? Humor? This week we'll prep our summer poem bodies with seven prompts designed to provoke and invite the visceral and somatic, both dark and light. We'll build muscle with, and move freely around, anaphora, syllabics, direct address, found text, ekphrasis, and erasure. You'll hear from your instructor daily, and we'll share a few "model" poems. The week will end with a personal audio note for each student and an individualized reading list.
