Join poet Ciona Rouse in a contemplative practice in imagining new intentions for your life just as the new year naturally makes us reset and revise. Ciona will guide participants in self-reflection, visualization methods and free-writing and then usher you into a vision boarding exercise where participants will individually collage their desires and inspirations for the year ahead.

Note: This class is scheduled to take place in-person at Porch HQ. You must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to participate, and we will enroll a maximum of 9 participants. Masks are not required at this time, though we will revisit this policy as needed. Check our website and this listing for details before you attend class.

Ciona Rouse is the author of the chapbook Vantablack (Third Man Books, 2017) and poetry editor of WORDPEACE online journal. Her work can be found in The Account, Gabby Journal, Native Magazine, Matter: a journal of political poetry and commentary, and Talking River. She lives in Nashville, Tenn., where she co-hosts Re/Verb, a podcast where music, literature, and pop culture collide, with the poet Kendra DeColo, and also curates many local poetry experiences and reading series.

What Our Students Say

Ciona was a dream. The perfect person to help people gain confidence while compiling work.

Ciona Rouse is encouraging and accepting as she prods us to develop, expand and edit and re-edit our poetry. I am so happy to have taken her workshop. The piece of work I created would not have been possible without her coaching and guidance.

Ciona is amazing, she is clearly on a very high level. I was lucky to study with some detail oriented professors and she does a great job of getting the same high level of information out and doesn't get lost in theory or go on unnecessary tangents. She is really unique and talented in how she is able to keep everyone focused and making sure they absorb all the world-class insight she provides. She is a real treasure for the city of Nashville.
