Radical Poetic Imagination / 5-week poetry workshop with Janet Hamill

This workshop will meet the following Sundays: October 22, October 29, November 5, November 12, November 19

TIME/LOCATION: 12 PM – 2 PM at Bowery Poetry located at 308 Bowery INSTRUCTOR: Janet Hamill

This workshop explores the picture-making and inventive aspects of the imagination as manifested in the work of some of the most original poets of the past two hundred years: Blake, Coleridge, Poe, Baudelaire, Rimbaud, Mallarme, Apollinaire, Reverdy, Tzara, Breton, Lamantia, Ginsberg, Guest, and Ashbery. Each poet will be examined against the backdrop of his/her historical period and the visual art of that period. Each session will involve a generative exercise.

Janet Hamill’s first book of poetry was published in 1975. Troublante (Oliphant Press), was followed by The Temple (Telephone Books), Nostalgia of the Infinite (Ocean View Books), Lost Ceilings (Telephone Books), Body of Water (Bowery Books), Tales from the Eternal Cafe (Three Rooms), and Knock (Spuyten Duyvil). Her work has been nominated for the Poetry Society of America's William Carlos Williams Prize and the Pushcart Prize. Tales from the Eternal Cafe, her first collection of fiction, was named "One of the Best Books of 2014" by Publisher's Weekly. Janet has also released two CD’s of spoken word and music. Janet’s paintings have been exhibited at the JP Art Market in Jamaica Plain, MA and galleries throughout New York's Hudson Valley, where she now resides.
