Dis/Course 2: Architecture of the Interior: how to save the house with Angel Dominguez

A generative poetry workshop for the good of your heart and its ongoing memory matrixes. In this (dis)course we'll work our way through various exercises, passages, meditations, and writings in order to shape the many architectures of the interior we carry within ourselves. We'll consider the portals, windows; corridors, and gardens of our memories further defining their shapes and connections through writing. We'll consider the work of several poets and philosophical thinkers to engage with and activate a poetics to save/store/preserve the myriad architectures of the interior in language.

Each Dis/Course meeting is free and open and meets virtually on Zoom. Participants are invited to RSVP in advance to receive a packet of readings and other material to begin the conversation. Reading in advance, however, is not be required, nor is any particular education background or expertise. Come, talk about poetry and possibility, teach, learn, share, and connect more deeply with The Poetry Project community.
