Dana, a tremendous poet and inspiring teacher, will be remembered by old Field hands for the writers’ session she facilitated for several years at Richard Hugo House.
Here is a chance for Seattle fans of Dana Elkun to work with her again, even though she has moved away.
Lighthouse Online Poetry Workshop
10/22/12 – 12/14/12
This ongoing workshop focuses on your poems—writing them, reading them, listening to them, and discussing them. Every week we’ll take a close look at a few participant poems in the middle stages of composition. At the same time, we’ll read some old and new published poems for hints as to how they tick. Most importantly, perhaps, we’ll write new poems or pre-poems using exercises as a starting point. Throughout, we’ll discuss and think about what a poem might be rather than what it should be. Join us at any stage in your exploration of poetry.
