The picturesque structure and symbolic passages of mountains and valleys in poetry goes back to antiquity. In part, the poet lives by a code of paying attention. Think of the simple beauty that others sometimes miss in nature. Let it inspire you and write some poetry with us.
Some of the very first complex human societies began here. This week’s poetry prompt asks you to imagine yourself as a natural trough in the earth— a valley. Join us, animate yourself into the hollow of a sloping river valley, and create poetry.
In this delicious food-writing workshop, you’ll have a chance to look at popular favorites (potatoes, bread, cakes, anyone?) and a rainbow of foods you may or may not have ever developed a love for (eggplant, olives, sugar-coated rose petals?). Come write words you can taste!
