Ishmael Reed—Getting Outside Of Your Head: Poetry Exercises That Will Free Your Mind

Poets don’t do themselves any favors when they struggle with every line, attempting to make it perfect. Poetry should be about the unrestricted flow of ideas that spring from your mind. In this workshop, poet/essayist/activist Ishmael Reed—recipient of both Guggenheim and MacArthur fellowships—will help you uncork the brilliance and let it flow more naturally onto the page. Come with ideas and prepare to workshop! 

Each Master Class Mixer is limited to just 15 students, lasts for three hours, and concludes with a reception with the author. If you are unable to attend your class, please email info@litquake.org at least seven days prior to receive a refund or credit, minus a $25 service charge.
