In this intensive generative workshop, we will discuss how natural and constructed landscapes affect our identities and shape our writing. More than “nature poetry” in its traditional sense, we will study how the outside world can be used as a metaphor for relationships, our internal lives, and human connectiveness, investigating empathy, mood, line breaks, evocative language, and other elements.

We will analyze diverse poems from contemporary poets that successfully employ place as metaphors, followed by hands-on writing activities, prompts, and plenty of in-class writing time.
