About This Activity

Weight of the Unknown: Writing from the unconstricted throat- We live in a culture that wants to know we chart, graph, test, outline, classify, name and judge. But what of all the messiness, mystery and unruly potential that breeds beneath our longing for certainty? What would happen when we engage, as Adrienne Rich writes, with the weight of the unknown, the untracked, the unrealized? In this workshop we'll play with our voices, see what kinds of boundaries we have set up for ourselves that we no longer see. And we will explore how we might draw strength from "the great muscle of metaphor" launching our poems and ourselves into the vast realm of possibility. With poetry as our guide, we'll go deeper into paradox and write our own explorations of what if and what else. Let's see what even a small bit of wonder might do ?
