Residency Statement

We will put the “play” back into poetry. And politics. And passion.  All three will be dangerous – but we're after the truth in its purest form, and sometimes it's not on the surface, it has to be dredged up or teased out or toyed with. Mornings we'll make poems, weekday afternoons from 2-4 PM we'll experiment in our “lab” – except for Thursdays, when we'll have individual conferences for poets to bring in poems not generated during our afternoon sessions. In addition to rethinking or consolidating work, we will read and talk about timely essays, and review the writing of other provocative poets. “The sources of poetry are in the spirit seeking completeness” – Muriel Rukeyser.
