The Poetry Project: Turning an Obsession into a Book

I’ll be leading a 5-part series at the Ridgefield CT library in March. Classes take place on Thursday evenings: 3/7, 3/14, 3/21, 4/4 and 4/11 from 6:00-7:30 PM.

The project book speaks to the writer’s need to look widely and deeply into a concern or constraint; a form or question or collection – in short, into what obsesses us. The project book allows writers to be hooked by their compulsions. We’ll look at some recent project books as we explore and interrogate our own preoccupations using visual works of art and other generative techniques. We’ll consider the scope of our particular fixation and its construction into book. Bring an obsession/passion/idea/ question/word/ image and discover your project.
