Hugo House offers writing class for teachers

This time around it's Organic Poetry with Paul Nelson, a free class for teachers to be held March 17 from 5-7 p.m.

Here's the description:
Is the universe a machine based on competition, or an organism based on process, interdependence and relationship? Organic Poetry, a stance toward poem making dubbed by Robert Duncan and Denise Levertov, allows the moment of composition to be an occasion of experience, an experiment in consciousness. This entertaining workshop includes discussion of poets Charles Olson, Denise Levertov, Joanne Kyger, Michael McClure and others, sound from these poets and writing exercises designed to help you allow the act of writing to be an exhilarating revelation of content.

As always, please rsvp to writingclassforteachers@gmail.com
