THE ULTIMATE METAPHOR: Writing Intensive

Presented by Bertha Rogers   Bertha-Rogers-1

Before poets could read and write, they spoke their poems, and they drew and carved on available surfaces. When the monks began copying holy texts, they weren’t satisfied with words only; they began illuminating the manuscripts with both sacred and profane drawings and paintings. William Blake was famous for his poems rich with watercolors. What we call “outsider art” frequently features words and images. – B. Rogers

 In THE ULTIMATE METAPHOR INTENSIVE WORKSHOP, poets will bring a poem that is no more than 15 lines and in the beginning stages. We will work on “translating” the poem into metaphoric language (first hour), then “re-translating/transmuting” the poem into images, i.e., illustrating it, using the metaphors as “take-off” devices and including alliteration and other poetic devices.

 The Intensive leader will provide dictionaries and thesauri, cardstock, paints, pencils, pens, and any other necessary tools or equipment. Each participant will leave with a complete or almost-complete poem.

Recommended for Intermediate to Advanced Poets.
