Poetry Brothel

A unique and immersive poetry event that takes poetry outside classrooms and lecture halls and places it in the lush interiors of a bordello. The Madame presents a rotating cast of poets (Diana will transform once more into Samantha Badri) each operating within a carefully crafted character, who impart their work in public readings, spontaneous eruptions of poetry, and most distinctly, as purveyors of private poetry readings on beds, chaise lounges and in private rooms.

The Grace Paley Craft Lecture

This lecture will be about the “central channel”—something well-known in Eastern contemplative disciplines, though rarely discussed in connection with writing. Understanding the central channel, and how to apply it to writing, can reveal much about our craft, and open up our teaching.

Marin Poetry Center – poetry workshop (more info to come)

EXTRAORDINARY SEEING:

A Poetry Workshop with Diana Goetsch

 

Often the act of writing poetry is regarded as "lofty," an endeavor requiring profound insight, else why even attempt it? But insight is not what goes into writing a poem, rather, it is what comes out of it. 

In this workshop participants will be shown innovative and delightful ways to compose and revise poems, in order to lay the ground for extraordinary seeing. We will have time to start some new poems, and also get feedback on something we've brought in. 

Cost: $100/125/150, sliding scale
Location: private home in Novato
