Advanced Poetry Mondays Workshop with Kristine Uyeda: Mahany/Meininger Community Center, Room #2, 3500 Marais, Royal Oak, 48073, Mondays, February 8, 15, 22, 29, March 7 & 14, 7pm - 9pm. In Dean Young’s words, “poetry is not a discipline. It is a hunger, a revolt, a drive, a mash note, a fright, a tantrum, a grief, a hoax, a debacle, an application, an affect.” This session will focus on exploring that poetic recklessness. We’ll use Dean Young’s book, The Art of Recklessness as a discussion text, so please pick up a copy for yourself if you wish to participate. Each week, we’ll spend 20-30 minutes discussing a portion of the book and the balance of our time critiquing fellow poets’ work. Limited to 8 poets. Kristine Uyeda is a Kundiman fellow whose poems, micro fiction, and essays have appeared in a number of journals and anthologies. She holds an MFA in Poetry from Vermont College of Fine Arts. Poets who haven’t been in Springfed classes before please send 3 sample poems to firstname.lastname@example.org.
