UNDER THEIR SKIN: THE ART OF THE PERSONA POEM

at The Poetry Barn

Starts 6/7/21 ($295 early bird price until 5/17. $315 after)

Write what you know? Not in this workshop. In our four weeks together, you’ll set your own experiences aside and write what you don’t know. You’ll wear the mask of the other, or the personae in Latin, and swear like a sailor, or converse as genteelly as a Southern belle sipping from a China tea cup. You’ll explore another gender, travel the Amazon, be Cleopatra, Lady Gaga, Jack the Ripper or Mother Teresa. You can be the lover of a famous person, or for a few stanzas or paragraphs, live in that person’s skin.
