Just Poets Annual Fall Retreat

  • Gell: A Finger Lakes Creative Retreat 6581 West Hollow Road Naples, NY, 14512 United States (map)

 

Come and help us celebrate another wonderful year of poetry and creative community building!!! Once again we'll be meeting at the Gleason Lodge at the Gell: A Finger Lakes Creative Retreat.

Break bread with some of the area's finest poets. Come work, relax, learn, and create in a beautiful fall setting.  Coffee and food in a.m., dish-to-pass lunch in afternoon. Learn, write and make new friends!

MORNING SESSION: TOKEYA GRAHAM

INTERIORS AND EXTERIORS: WRITING SELF IN POETRY

How do we use words to craft other selves? To grapple with past hurts, present identities, and future realities? How does self-exploration work in tandem with the poetic? This workshop will be an exploration of self— real and imagined—and the ways we use poetry as a tool of self-expression.

AFTERNOON SESSION

Outside the Walls (poetic walk-about) followed by reflections in words and a Sharing Your Work Circle (bring your best one! or get creative right there!)

A.M. Session begins at 9:30. Arrive a little earlier to have a cup of coffee and mingle.

Fall foliage, comfortable chairs and a great fireplace await you.
