Organic Poetry


Using excerpts from radio interviews he’s done over the years with poets in the Organic (Projective, Open Form) tradition, including Allen Ginsberg, Charles Olson, Michael McClure, Eileen Myles, Wanda Coleman—along with other sound—this workshop provides an overview of Organic Poetry and alternates discussion, lecture, sound bites and handouts with writing exercises that help to silence your inner editor and focus on the luminous details. Available in an abbreviated single session of 90 minutes or up to 24 hours (12, weekly 2-hour sessions), this incredible workshop will benefit writers of every skill level and broaden their knowledge of open form poetry.
