Is there a beast or a plant that’s always called to you; a bird on a branch, a wolf in the snow, a beach rose? Do you think of this being as a guide? A companion? A potential tattoo? In this generative poetry workshop, we’ll choose a creature and, through prompts, start to build a poem.

With Acclaimed Poet & AIDS Activist Robert Carr

Acclaimed Poet and AIDS Activist, Robert Carr is the author of five poetry collections, and his work has appeared in the Greensboro Review, Lana Turner, Maine Review, Massachusetts Review, Shenandoah and other publications. He is co-editor for the 2019 Ghana Literary Group anthology, Bodies and Scars; a 2022 Monson Arts resident; and 2024 Tuscany writer in residence with SPOKE, a Boston based arts advocacy organization. Forthcoming collections include Phallus Sprouting Leaves, winner of the 2024 Rane Arroyo Chapbook Series at Seven Kitchens Press; and Blue Memento, from Lily Poetry Review Books.
