The Writer’s Center: Pushing Past Clichés in Love Poems

Saturday, February 16 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Writer's Center logo

So much of our self-definition rests on who we love and desire, as well as all those loves lost. But when trying to translate those honest sentences—”I love you,” “I want you,” or “Here’s why our love won’t work”—into a poem, so much of the meaning is lost in the sad static of cliché and unearned sentimentality. Drawing on the poems of writers like Dorianne Laux, Matthew Olzmann, and Sharon Olds, this workshop will help you ground your love poems in the rough, vibrant texture of the world.

Workshop Leader: Nickole Brown & Jessica Jacobs
