The Forgotten Dialect of the Heart

Sometimes the relationship with what we are studying, or how we’ve been doing it, goes stale. The head hurts. We lose heart. This workshop aims to coax students into different kinds of conversations between about academic readings and their creative self, between heart and page, between who they are and what they are learning. Using poems and prompts, bring students reflect back into the room with what they know in a new way.

Please have a pen, paper, notebook or whatever you like to write with on hand. No experience necessary.

12-1:30pm. November 3, 2021
