LARFP 2 (1Q 2022)

This page is for participants in the Life as Rehearsal for the Poem workshop, Year 2 (2021/2022). (How this got its name, here.) My hope is that I can work more deeply with a small group of people who are interested in this ongoing effort to help all participants in going deeper into their own work, facilitator included. Workshops will happen from 4-6pm Sundays:

January 16, 23, 30 & Feb 6 & 13. Registration is open HERE.

Some material for the break:

A Little History: The Deeply Personal as Political

Playlists for the break:


“Jazz is a way of life,” he said. “It’s not an idiom of music. Jazz is spontaneous improvisation. If you ever leave your house with nowhere to go, and just walk for pleasure, observing and looking around, you’ll find that you improvise.”

– Pat Martino
August 25, 1944 – November 1, 2021


For more PM:


Can you write a blunt statement such as Kruger’s response to the Pledge of Allegiance “Untitled (Our people),” 1994/2017? Could you write a blunt statement with the opposite tone?








Does your house/writing space have a name? If no, consider naming it. If yes, use it each time during your check-in. We resume meetings January 16, 2022.
