POETRY OF THE WILD
a workshop for lovers of language and wilderness
with Timothy P. McLaughlin
This daylong immersion into POETRY OF THE WILD will guide participants through the comprehensive process of creating and activating an oral poem in collaboration with Nature. Held in the majestic red-rock canyons of northern New Mexico, the day will be a rich mix of oral teachings and recitations, wandering and listening, and composing and sharing aloud.
As we begin to again structure our human society in greater communication with the Earth, we are remembering the ancient role of the poet was less academic and more mystical, less about recording insular patterns of thought and more about vocalizing expansive discoveries of word-music. Come engage with the power of oral tradition and with the natural playfulness and magic-making of language your soul hungers for and delights in.
