The Natural Narrative: A Poet’s Body as Work
with Mahogany Browne
During this 7 week workshop, we will concentrate on creating dialogues between the internal poet body and the external poet world. Referring to contemporary inspirations: Mary Oliver, Nikky Finney, Yusef Komunyakaa, Ai, Kwame Dawes, Yona Harvey, Margaret Atwood & Jake Adam York for inspiration, this journey promises to unearth the poet’s landscape with surprising and trans-formative narratives.
