Class: Rusty Morrison- For Poets: Courting the Emergent

02/04/2015 8:00 pm

Wed. Feb. 4 • 6:00-8:00 pm • $40 

 

Most writing classes focus on praxis— teachable techniques currently in vogue. Yet, it’s a common tenet of creativity that a poet must break with conventions if an impulse of emergent possibility, of poiesis, arises that calls the writer beyond what is currently popular, beyond the current norms of one’s own writing style. How to teach the art of attuning to one’s own unique unveiling of the previously unseen and bring it into presence?

In this class, we will observe that a strict division between poiesis and praxis isn’t necessary: we’ll try catalysts that ask poiesis, thrilling, unexpected directions, to spring from astute attention to what is waiting, nascent, in one’s praxis. Current studies in neuroscience support this: unexpected insights can arrive when old ideas galvanize in new ways. The right brain trolls the left and recombines what it finds. Though we are usually unconscious to the process, we can train ourselves to become more alert to its potential occurrence. This class is appropriate for new poets and for poets who are very proficient in their craft.
