Master Poetry Workshop with Denise Low: Poems as Maps.“More delicate than the historians’ are the map-makers’ colors,” writes Elizabeth Bishop in “The Map.” Writing poems is a delicate cartography. Explore topics and techniques of geography in this sequence of discussions and workshops. Weekly topics include brief “lectures” by Denise; sample poems, articles, and links; and interactive critiques. This is available either online (Google Groups), on the ground, or combinations of both (especially if you have to miss a meeting). Johnson County Central Resource Library in OP, 5:45-8 pm. $30/session with 3 poems critiqued (one in on-the-ground workshops; 2 optional online in addition). Pay in advance $150 for all 6 sessions.
