As children, we loved poetry for its sounds, its silliness, its relevance to our daily lives and our dreams. Then, for too many of us, years of poetry “education” took all the fun away and gave us headaches looking for hidden meanings and themes. Enough of that! You can turn back the clock and learn to love poetry again!

The workshop is led by Big Blue Marble Poet-in-Residence Elliott batTzedek. Elliott has an MFA in Poetry and Poetry in Translation from Drew University and years of teaching and workshop experience.

In this two hour workshop we’ll touch on the huge variety of amazing contemporary poets, and look at their work the ways poets look at poetry – not as a mystery to solve, but a celebration of sound, music, and image. If you know you like poetry but don’t know quite where to start reading, this workshop is for you!
