In this interactive workshop, participants will read poems by Jerome Rothenberg, Vievee Francis, and dg nanouk okpik to discuss how each poet draws from cosmology to compose metonym, metaphor, and grammar in poems of self-formation. We will also read and discuss specific poetic procedures used by Robin Coste Lewis and LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs and, using these poets’ techniques, compose poems of the self using language literally found in astrological/mythological texts and glossaries from across cultural traditions.
