Our Denver Correspondent Writes --

Two-weekend Lighthouse Writers Intensive Workshop: Elizabeth Bishop and the Art of Seeing

No poet has a finer eye than Elizabeth Bishop. The depth and precision of her seeing, and the extraordinary richness of her descriptions, are unsurpassed in American poetry. In this two-weekend reading-as-a-writer course, we’ll study what makes Bishop’s visual perception so remarkable, and we’ll explore ways to bring that level of seeing into our own work. Students will be asked to write one poem in response to Bishop's work and to memorize one Bishop poem. Our text will be the recently released POEMS.

This class is open to writers of all genres.

It will meet on two consecutive weekends:
December 3, 4, 10, and 11, from 1 to 4 PM.

Instructor: John Brehm, MFA
Starts: 12/03/2011
Time(s): 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Cost: $285.00 members / $315.00 non-members
Location: Lighthouse Attic - Attic (3rd Floor)
1515 Race Street, Denver, CO 80218
