Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) Poetry Workshop

Luci Tapahonso, will lead a 2-day Poetry Workshop on the IAIA Campus on Friday and Saturday, June 23 and 24, 2017, from 10:00 am-4:00 pm each day.  The campus is located at 83 Avan Nu Po Road, on the South Side of Santa Fe -- just minutes from the intersection of Rodeo Road and Richards Avenue. Lunch and Refreshments will be provided.

In Navajo teachings, it's said that the "sacred begins at the tip of my tongue." What does this mean and how does it apply to poetry? In this two-day workshop, participants will explore this concept and write poems with a focus on the importance of place, family history, personal memories, and their connections to community. Participants will write in both open form and fixed form.

Participants should be prepared to immerse themselves in poetry, to write new poems in response to prompts, and to create at least three new poems. Bring your preferred method for writing: journal, notepad, or laptop. Poems will be compiled and printed for Saturday's class.
