Lighthouse Writers Workshop: Fire Up Your Poetic Brain

“The brain is wider than the sky”—so said Emily Dickinson. Indeed, reading and writing poetry can fundamentally shift your experience of ordinary things. This free class will introduce simple ideas and techniques that help anyone tap into the magic of poetic language, expand thinking/feeling, and enhance creativity. Not just for self-described poets. All levels welcome.

Instructor, Radha Marcum, MFA, is the author of Bloodline (3: A Taos Press, 2017), a collection about her grandfather's work building the first atomic bombs in New Mexico. She received the Klepser Fellowship in Poetry at the University of Washington and holds a BA in Writing from Bennington College. A poet with a keen interest in the landscapes of the physical world and of the mind, Radha's poems have appeared in many journals, including FIELD, West Branch, Pleiades, Gulf Coast, Chelsea, The Bellingham Review, Poetry Northwest, and the Taos Journal of International Poetry and Art.
