Poets on the Coast presents The Surrealist’s Toolkit: Generating New Poems from the Subconscious World, May 1 at 10 AM – 2:30 PM PST, with Kelli Russell Agodon & Susan Rich
From the organizers:
What do Sylvia Plath’s braid, an hourglass museum, and a lampshade of silvering hair have in common? They represent the New Surrealism. Together, we will generate a collage of poems using surrealist prompts from 20th-century surrealists as well as our own. We’ll also look at the wild surrealist women artists: Leonora Carrington, Leonor Fini, and Remedios Varo. Whether you know anything about the new surrealism or not, you will leave this class with 4-7 new poem starts and new pathways into writing a poem. A copy of Dialogues with Rising Tides, by Kelli Russell Agodon, Copper Canyon Press, 2021 is included in the registration.
And after our class ends, Kelli & Susan will email you a list of curated journals for you to submit your work to along with a model submission letter. In addition, we will provide you with places to send your book manuscript, now or in the future.
