Taos Poetry Workshop with Ellen Bass and Jericho Brown
May 26, 2020 - May 31, 2020
Taos, NM

If you want to write images like that “glint of light on broken glass”—precise, clear, and immediately arresting—please join Ellen Bass and Jericho Brown at the Taos Poetry Workshop. We’ll craft poems that combine compelling detail with complex thought to create work that is more powerful, authentic, courageous and memorable than you’ve ever written before.

We will take risks, summoning the courage to go over, under or around the censors that silence us. We’ll approach our experience from new angles to find the poem within the story. We’ll question the stories we think are true and explore the power of not-knowing and discovery.

We will write poems, share our writing, and hear what our work touches in others. We’ll also read model poems by contemporary poets and discuss aspects of the craft. But mainly this will be a writing retreat—time to explore and create in a supportive community. Though the focus is on poetry, prose writers who want to enrich their language will find it a fertile environment.
