Miriam Sagan Weekend Retreat

Friday - Saturday January 24-25, 2020.

At Jules' Poetry Playhouse, Placitas, NM

 

Keeping A Poetic Diary will emphasize techniques that can bring journal keeping alive and create finished pieces. We’ll work with lists, letters, flash memoir, and more—as well as traditional Japanese approaches of haiku and prose (haibun) and poetry with visuals (haibun). Expect timed writing, reading aloud, doodling, a look at blogging, and inspiration. Models range from Joanne Kyger’s twentieth century “Strange Big Moon” to Sei Shonagaon’s tenth century “Pillow Book.”

class limit 12.

     Miriam Sagan is the author of DIRTY LAUNDRY (100 Days in A Zen Monastery, New World Library) with Robert Winson and A HUNDRED CUPS OF COFFEE (2019, Tres Chicas Press).  Miriam lives in Santa Fe, NM.
