Experiment with poetry’s power to reshuffle, reorient, and return to different temporal moments.
Suppose you can reinvent the past or fast-forward to the future, where or when would you like to be? How do you whittle down a lifetime to a page; capture with precision – like a surgeon – that split-second of hesitation? Can you regain a lost childhood, reshuffle moments as if they were a pack of cards; shuttle through history? Together, we will time-travel in the poems of Jorie Graham, Will Harris, Vidyan Ravinthiran, Mona Arshi, Rebecca Goss, and Alan Buckley, explore notions of time by writing new poems and sequences, looking to arrive somewhere new. No spacesuits needed.
