Exploring our Landscapes: Poetry and Place

Language is housed in the landscapes that surround us: the phonics card with the red-trimmed house which resembles your neighbor’s down the street, the blue-blistered bottom of the Elizabeth River ferry you take to work which makes you recall Walt Whitman’s “Crossing Brooklyn Ferry,” and the optimistically titled billboard you pass on the freeway which reads, “We’ll get you your money fast.” You realize, everywhere, you are surrounded by spaces which affect your identity and language and how your identity and language, in turn, affects these spaces. In this workshop, we will investigate these places and explore issues such as identity, ecology, faith, and imagination to untangle the myths we’ve carried and to re/discover what is disappearing around us.

Please note: This class or event will be held online (using Zoom or a similar live platform). To participate, students or attendees should have a stable internet connection. Class participants: you should have a computer or device with a webcam and microphone; and your Zoom link will be automatically sent to you after you register.
