Falling for Poetry: Alchemy of Poetry – G200927

For all levels, the published to those who’re intimidated by poetry. We will begin with free writes from the inner and move into the outer world. Inspiring examples from a variety of poets will entice us to find that inner gold. We all have it and the alchemy of poetry is a way to find our own ores. Each morning and evening we will write and read our work. You will leave with a sheaf of poems and an appreciation of self and others. I have taught this topic many times and it never fails to work its literary magic.
Please note that our workshop price structure packages your tuition, course materials, lodging and meals together in a single rate.

What is double occupancy and single occupancy lodging?
  • All-inclusive rates include double occupancy lodging, meaning that we will have two participants per room in most cases.If you do not specify a roommate, you will be assigned a roommate of the same gender
  • In the off-season (late October-May), participants may choose to upgrade to single occupancy lodging for an additional $50 per night. Guarantee single occupancy lodging by paying the single occupancy upgrade.
  • During our busy summer seasons, late June-July and late September-early October, participants who register alone should expect to have a roommate assigned to their room. In some limited circumstances, a single occupancy upgrade will be available at $100 per night.
What is the difference between a room with private bath, a room with semi-private or shared bath, and a room with communal/dorm bath?
  • Private refers to the type of bathroom, not single occupancy
    • Private: There is a bathroom in that one room that is not shared between or with any other rooms.
    • Semi-private/shared: There is a bathroom in between two rooms that is shared by the occupants of the two rooms.
    • Communal/dorm: There is a communal bathroom/showers in the lodging building (or in a proximate building, for some upper mesa dorm rooms), and participants will need to exit their room to reach these facilities.
