2019 Gold Rush Writers Conference

BEGINNINGS, ENDINGS, AND THE PRACTICED MAGIC BETWEEN


by

Indigo Moor

Indigo Moor Poetry is not naive. It is a concise language that artistically expresses an emotionally constructed moment. Getting into and out of the poem should be akin to stepping into a flame and exiting a nearly frozen stream… or vice versa. Between these precise bookends, we must exercise a balancing of image and statement that neither obscures the meaning nor presents a stale representation of the poetic intent.

This presentation and workshop will cover the artistic construction of poems, groups of poems, and a manuscript.
We will begin by examining and discussing the works of contemporary poets writing in myriad styles. There will be several optional exercises and a chance to share at the end.

The focus of this workshop will be to teach you the ruthless, practiced beauty necessary to make your poetry move and flow in your intended direction.
