Dunbar Pavillion, 325 w. 2nd St, 85701

In this three-hour intensive workshop with the highly acclaimed poet, sound artist, scholar, and actor, Tracie Morris, we’ll look at how sonic intent, sonic exploration can be cultivated as way of creating page-based and physically-embodied poetics. We’ll explore how sound was a fundamental theoretical element in different poetic forms whether page-based or live, its relation to, and distinction from music and how performative utterances can present a distinct voice for the same poem on the page and verbalized. The workshop will consist of conventional and experimental poetry, free-writing, body work, play, writing and revision and of course, the live presentation of our work to each other.
