Dreams are proof that we are all poets. Each night we create night-time anti-narratives driven by image.
As writers we’re told to keep a notebook on our nightstands (and sometimes we even take that advice) but even if we achieve the small miracle of remembering and recording a dream, how do we translate it into a poem?
In this workshop we will learn how to distill our dreams, how to sharpen that washy quality they so often have. We’ll extract the dream’s logic and metaphor so as to write new poems that pop with otherworldly movement and colour.
