Book List

Coultas, Brenda: Marvelous Bones of Time; Field, Thalia: Bird Lovers, Backyard; Taylor, Catherine: Apart; Trethewey, Natasha: Native Guard


This fall I’m going to ask that poetry workshop members join me in reading and thinking about location as an active process and about cross-genre writing as a response to and engagement with that process.  Those are my particular—though by no means exclusive—interests for the fall and workshop people will be encouraged to work out of their own necessities.  The booklist: The Marvelous Bones of Time, by Brenda Coultas; Bird Lovers, Backyard, by Thalia Field; Apart, by Catherine Taylor; and Native Guard, by Natasha Trethewey.  Writing prompts, field trips, "worshopping," much conversation.

Workshop participants will be asked to keep a dream journal.
