Jumpstart Your Engines Workshop with Jericho Brown

from 70.00

In the Jumpstart Your Engines Poetry Workshop, Jericho Brown helps students generate new work through a set of unconventional exercises that keep our ears open and our fingers moving. The workshop engenders new ideas about writing, and as there is a profound relationship between reading poetry and writing it, we participants read, discuss, and even recite the work of several poets whose examples might lead us to a further honing of our craft.

  • Instructor: Jericho Brown

  • Length of workshop: 3 Hours

  • Date: Saturday, May 4

  • Time: 2 - 5 pm
