The first Stroll of Poets workshop of the year is entitled Exploring Poetic Sensibility and will be offered by Richard Davies. Participants are asked to share/read a short poem (or excerpt) by someone else that influenced them to become poets. They are also invited to share a brief personal poem that they think represents their own poetic sensibility, typical approach, voice, and style. (Poems should be 1 page max., on handouts–13 copies of each poem for the group). Participants have 8 mins. max. each to present the above (please pre-rehearse), followed by group questions, discussion and feedback. This way the group will get to experience different contexts, poems, voices, and creative processes that reflect each participant’s poetic sensibility. The class is limited to twelve participants.
