Online Writing Workshop

Unity And Trane

facilitated by Tongo Eisen-Martin

Sundays 1PM–3PM (4/4, 4/11, 4/18 and 4/25)

About The Workshop

As of March 31, this workshop is full. Thank you for your interest!

Synthesized by the music and theory of John Coltrane, the objective of this workshop is to share strategies for writing, editing, and reciting poems generated by the idea that your poetry is a part of your wanted Human Experience taking place in and revealed by an interconnected reality. The view of craft as a component can wall away potential insight and inhibit writing. Writing strategies that flow from the reality that craft does not have to be a metaphysical, separate entity from you strengthens all internal processes of liberation. From political to unpopulated realities of the world, all continuums of existence can emerge together in a line of poetry within a cooperation to produce Insight. You can let the infinite, naturally occurring unities of reality do the work for you on the page.

Date/Times: Sundays 1PM-3PM (4/4, 4/11, 4/18 and 4/25)
