Workshop: Mystifying the Familiar Led by Jo Angela Edwins

Pat Conroy Literary Center 601 Bladen Street, Beaufort, SC, United States

In this workshop, we’ll discuss how imaginative unions in poems can lead to insight. We’ll look at poems like Billy Collins’ “Hippos on Holiday” or Heid E. Erdrich’s “Indigenous Elvis at the Airport” to see the effect of the juxtaposition of the ordinary and the unexpected. As a generative exercise, we’ll also do a writing activity to inspire the beginnings of such a poem.
