“Swirl and Vortex”: The Poem That Braids Together Multiple Contrasting Narratives or Materials with Patrick Donnelly
Craft Workshop for Poets Announced!
Straw Dog Writers Guild is delighted to announce an online workshop offered by poet Patrick Donnelly, “Swirl and Vortex”: The Poem That Braids Together Multiple Contrasting Narratives or Materials June 22 from 7:00pm – 8:30pm.
We hope you will consider donating any amount to this and other programs offered by Straw Dog Writers Guild here: http://www.strawdogwriters.org/fund-drive
Some poems focus narrowly on one story or set of material. Others seek to braid together two or three stories or sets of contrasting material. We’ll look at poems by Larry Levis, Adrienne Rich, and Diane Seuss, to discover how poems get a tremendous burst of emotional/intellectual energy when a common thread is revealed in seemingly unrelated stories or materials.
PATRICK DONNELLY is the author of four books of poetry, Little-Known Operas (Four Way Books, 2019), Jesus Said (a chapbook from Orison Books, 2017), Nocturnes of the Brothel of Ruin (Four Way Books, 2012), and The Charge (Ausable Press, 2003, since 2009 part of Copper Canyon Press), which was a 2013 finalist for the Lambda Literary Award. Donnelly is director of the Poetry Seminar at The Frost Place, Robert Frost’s old homestead in Franconia, NH, now a center for poetry and the arts. (This year’s Seminar is August 2 – 7, and will take place online: https://frostplace.org/programs/poetry-seminar/) Donnelly’s awards include a U.S./Japan Creative Artists Program Award, an Artist Fellowship from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and a 2018 Amy Clampitt Residency Award.
