Poetry: Labyrinth of the First Draft
We will explore how to incorporate this tool of reflection and discovery into our writing practice by creating mini-labyrinths ourselves, and generating work from labyrinth-inspired prompts. We'll read labyrinthine writing by Alice Notley, Oliver de la Paz, Sun Yung Shin, Melissa Febos, G.E. Patterson, and others. We will also discuss mythology, consider archetype, engage the body, and examine potential blocks in our paths. Participants will leave with some fresh writing and the ability to draw their own finger labyrinths for future use.
