Poet Camp: Corning Museum of Glass
Corning, New York

June 9-12, 2021

 

In Person, $500, limited to 8 participants

"Day Camper," $250, limited to 6 participants

Join us for an immersive ekphrastic workshop, using prompts based on the works and exhibits found in the Corning Museum of Glass. This camp includes time to write, time to explore the museum with my packet of ekphrastic prompts/activities, time to work on drafts, time to share fresh drafts both in a seated readaround and later, on Wet.Ink for feedback. You'll leave inspired to bring some of the beauty and craft of this incredible medium to the page, and the glow of being in the quiet company of kindred spirits brings.

In-person Corning Poet Camper (8 seats available, $500)

 

4 days retreat & workshop at Corning, NY, prompt & resources packet before our time at the museum. Time to write and explore the massive museum and the charming town of Corning. Time with our community of Poet Campers. PLUS access to Wet.Ink two weeks following our trip (June 13-27) for a few extras and posting of up to 3 poems for fellow Poet Camper and Sarah’s feedback.

 

*If Covid requires we pivot due to shutdowns in New York state or in some other way, we’ll move to Zoom during these days, but will not cancel the “live” components. I’ll lead this as I would any other generative session, with Corning Museum based prompts & activities, as well as timed writes, framed with sacred space for creation and scheduled activities and time together to share and socialize before we have time together the following week on Wet.Ink.
