Join us on Sunday, April 10, 2022 at 2:00pm Central for a generative workshop with featured poet J. Bailey Hutchinson.
DON’T YUCK MY YUM, or, Can I Write a Poem about That?
In this workshop, we’ll confront the fallacy that some things simply aren’t “poetic” enough to write about. We’ll discuss poetry that engages with surprising subjects—from bedsores, boy bands, Batman, and beyond—and generate our own surprising poems together.
Recommended for participants 16 years and above.
ACCESS NOTES: The workshop will take place virtually via Zoom with Zoom auto captions. An ASL interpreter will be present. Access copies of workshop materials will be made available via Google Docs. Our Access Statement will be read before we begin.
Communication Access Real-time Translation (CART) service will be provided with advance request. To ensure that we have enough time to book and allow captioners to prepare, please reach out to the Open Mouth team through Eventbrite or via email at email@example.com by March 27 to request CART service.
