We are now in the throes of a sixth mass extinction of plants and animals. Some call it the Antropocene, but biologist E.O. Wilson said it may be called by scientists and poets alike the Eremozoic, meaning “The Age of Loneliness.” If we take the worries of climate change and habitat destruction seriously—and in this lonely age potentially bereft of our fellow creatures—how can we help but feel an incapacitating sense of hopelessness that threatens to render things like literature…

September 29 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Hudson Valley Writers Center, Philipse Manor Station
Sleepy Hollow, NY 10591 United States

So much of our self-definition rests on who we love and desire, as well as all those loves lost. But when trying to translate those honest sentences—"I love you," "I want you"—into a poem, so much of the meaning is lost in the sad static of cliché and unearned sentimentality. Drawing on the poems of writers like Dorianne Laux, Matthew Olzmann, and Sharon Olds, this workshop will help you ground your love poems in the rough, vibrant texture of the…

$10 69 tickets left

Larry Weaner is an icon in the world of ecological landscape design, and now his revolutionary approach is available to all gardeners. Garden Revolution shows how an ecological approach to planting can lead to beautiful gardens that buck much of conventional gardening’s counter-productive, time-consuming practices. Instead of picking the wrong plant and then constantly tilling, weeding, irrigating, and fertilizing, Weaner advocates for choosing plants that are adapted to the soil and climate of a specific site and letting them naturally evolve over…

You know those spells when you have nothing to say but you long to write—something? You miss the feel of the pen moving across the page? Translating is a beautiful and intriguing way of deepening your writing skills while waiting for your own voice to return to you. But the art of translation also makes a formidable contribution to our literary culture. Think of it as a form of impersonation, of ventriloquism, of paint-by-number, of re-invention and re-creation. Do you…

This workshop will explore the defining characteristics, strengths and weaknesses of three modes of poetry: story (narrative), feeling (lyric), and thinking (meditative). We’ll examine, though close readings of several poems, how these modes can—and should!—combine into hybrid modes, in which each mode supplies qualities that the others lack. We’ll ask the question: if you were to give a close, objective reading to your own work as a whole, which of the three modes would you say is in the foreground?…
