Dateline: NASHVILLE (Documentary Poetry as Historic Storytelling)

Docupoetics allows the poet to become journalist, investigator and historian by exploring history in verse. In this workshop, we'll take a look at writings about documentary poetry & some examples like Molly McCully Brown, Natasha Trethewey, Adrian Matejka and others. Using Nashville history as writing prompts, we'll generate some new work. Students will have time to explore other narratives they may wish to tell, as well.

Poetry Workshop: The Art of Getting Messy

  • Nashville Public Library Inglewood Branch (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Painters' jeans are usually splattered in specks of color—evidence of the artist letting go and getting a bit messy. Sometimes we don't allow ourselves to get messy enough in our poems, though. Together, we will explore what it means to write the messy thing, read/hear some poetic examples, and then follow some prompts to create new messy work.
