VATC- Give Me the loot! How to steal like a poet with John Murillo

October 26, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

$135

This is a three-hour poetry workshop with Faculty John Murillo

“Good poets borrow, great poets steal.”–T.S. Eliot

“What we call originality is just a new amalgam of old influences.”—Marvin Bell

In this class, we will explore strategies by which poets may enrich their own art by deliberately imitating their favorites… and their favorites’ favorites! We will discuss such topics as voice, influence, and originality, as well as the imperative of serving a serious apprenticeship. Participants should bring to this session either a few passages from their one favorite writer, or one passage each from a few of their favorite writers.
