The Poems of Our Dreams and Daydreams
In this webinar we will explore the dream quality in poems based on dreams. We will discuss ways to get started recording dreams and best practices in using the raw material in poetry. I believe poets are dreamers and visionaries and daydreaming could be an integral part of our process. We will talk about the poets' abilities to stay connected to real and imagined worlds and to capture "visions" onto the page. We will go over a series of brilliant examples, then write our own dream poems as a class exercise.
