MoonLit DC: Spontaneous Poetry
Spontaneous Poetry will be fast, loud, and act as a creative spark to get the busy writer out of their own way. Utilizing poetic methods from poetry’s most innovative eras, the workshop will encourage direct observation, automatic writing, and a sense of play when looking at our results. Each participant will leave the workshop with 5 written poems and a handful of simple, repeatable methods to help them beat writer's block and get their words onto the page.
Every participant should leave this workshop with a few poems in hand, and easy techniques to help surmount any challenges from too little time or too little inspiration. Writing should be exploratory, unpredictable. Using these techniques can help the writer step away from predetermined judgments of results, and allow more acceptance and pleasure from the writing we do with the little time we have.
