Open Language: Intuitive Writing Workshop with Emily Brandt


Among poetry's many trickster gifts is its freedom to record our most intuitive experiences without the pressures of conventional grammars or linear time. In this workshop, we'll use meditative writing exercises to generate work that holds a microphone up to the backs of our brains. What can our associative mind reveal? What about our dreams? Our streams of consciousness? The activation of our six senses? Rather than relying on the analytic or imitative parts of our minds, well experiment with intuitive readings of a range of poets and see where such readings can steer our own creative processes. Poets of all experience levels are invited to join in this generative workshop experience. Expect to read, write, and workshop in a freeing way that lets your analytic mind rest, making space for other elemental voices to emerge.

Emily Brandt is the author of three chapbooks: Sleeptalk or Not At All, ManWorld and Behind Teeth. Among other places, her poems have recently appeared in LitHub, The Recluse, The Wall Street Journal, Washington Square Review, and the anthology Inheriting the War. Shes been in residence at Saltonstall Arts Colony and was a 2016 Emerging Poets Fellow at Poets House. Emily is a co-founding editor of No, Dear, Web Acquisitions Editor for VIDA, and an Instructional Coach at a NYC Public School.

5-week poetry workshop (noon-2 pm): April 28, May 5, 12, 19, 26.
