Service Description

The Paper Poet will share with participants the joys of finding poetry in existing texts and/or images and refashioning them as new poems. This “Pop Poem” workshop resembles Pop Art, hence the name, including the conflict between the literal and abstract, freedom of artistic expression, repetition of discovery and multiple meanings. Writer Annie Dillard has said that turning a text into a poem doubles that poem’s context, “The original meaning remains intact, but now it swings between two poles.” A found poem is the literary equivalent of a collage, and so, during our time together, we’ll have many opportunities to heal our sense of self through artistic rebuilding of poetry.
