Press release from Townsend Atelier:

The Poetic Mind | Poetry Writing Workshop

for teens & adults with Lisa Dordal

Saturday, June 8 | 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Cost: $95

Pre-registration required. Classes fill up quickly so please register soon.

In the words of Dorianne Laux and Kim Addonizio, “the poetic mind is a muscle that needs exercise to stay in shape.” Finding the time and generating the motivation to exercise our poetic mind, however, can be a challenge for many of us. In this poetry writing workshop, led by poet and teacher Lisa Dordal, we will spend time exercising our poetic minds through a series of writing exercises designed to get new ideas flowing and/or provide new direction for old ideas. The exercises are intended primarily for beginning and intermediate writers but should be useful for experienced poets as well. Students will need to bring their preferred writing materials (laptop, paper, pen or pencil etc). There will be a one-hour lunch break. Lunch will be provided.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

Lisa Dordal holds a Master of Divinity and a Master of Fine Arts in poetry, both from Vanderbilt University, and currently teaches in the English Department at Vanderbilt. Her poetry has appeared in a variety of journals and anthologies, and her chapbook, Commemoration, was released in 2012 from Finishing Line Press. She lives in Nashville with her partner, Laurie, and their two retired greyhounds.
