a five week workshop
every Saturday in September


Revel in the Self is a workshop hosted by poet BEE LB about who we are. How do we get to know who we are? What have we learned about ourselves up to this point, and what do we want to learn in the future? We'll delve into these questions, reading selected poetry relating to a different aspect of self each week.You can expect to come out of this workshop with around 5 newly written poems and, ideally, a deeper understanding of self and its different facets, as well as the community that helps uphold your many selves.

Week 2: Relation, 9/9
Week 3: Lineage, 9/16

workshop structure

Revel in the Self consists of five generative workshops. The structure will be roughly the same each week.Materials will be sent out in advance, in order to give participants time to familiarize themselves with the work we'll be reading. Zoom links will be sent out the day of the workshop.

The workshop will start with optional introductions asking for your name, pronouns, and a word to describe the aspect of self we're covering that week.We'll read 4-6 poems revolving around that particular aspect of self.After reading, we'll discuss the poems as a group, making collective meaning and hopefully coming to a fuller understanding of the self.Then we'll move onto scaffolding questions, a tool meant to move us from thinking about others’ writing into thinking about our own; mad libs, a fill-in-the-blank exercise meant to think creatively and work on associative leaps; and prompts related to the poems read and the aspect of self focused on.Finally, we'll move into a 15-minute writing time in which you craft a poem in whatever way feels best to you. After writing, we'll have an optional readback.
