A Poet’s Herbal: Useful Lore for the Poet Outdoors online course
November 13, 2017, 12:00 AM EST
Description: The work of finding and identifying wild plants requires skills common to the work of writing poetry in many ways: just as the forager must use the memories evoked by smelling and touching particular plant to recall its name and purpose, so must the poet have a strong grasp of the power the senses hold over memory. This ten-week online course accompanies our one day workshop – Foraging & Poetry Workshop – and will further examine many of the ways a close engagement with the natural world can inform poetic practice, looking specifically at plants and fungi.
