Poetry and Contemplation with Jan Zwicky

October 2, 2016, 12:00 AMOctober 7, 2016, 12:00 AM

Poetic or contemplative attention — what Simone Weil called “the natural prayer of the soul” — opens the ear, eye, heart and mind to the being and beings around us. In doing so, it reveals to us, as poets, that our best work is not about ourselves.
Learn to listen to your own work and to edit your poems with care and confidence. Group meetings include discussion of participants’ works in progress as well as exercises designed to foster contemplative awareness and literary technique. Each participant has the opportunity to meet one-on-one with the presenter.
