BEI Senior Fellow Patricia Spears Jones will teach a week-long poetry workshop in Provincetown, MA this July.  The workshop is titled “Basic and Bold” and will be held at Provincetown’s Fine Arts Work Center (click for more details).

From the FAWC website: “Poets often need to return to the radical — the root to refresh their practice. They need to rediscover the images, the rhythms, their reasons for making work.  This workshop is designed to do that by using contemporary poets and their different strategies as exemplars to generate new work.  While the focus is on African American poets, we will look at work from poets from a variety of backgrounds.  Participants will do some serious reading and writing, writing, and writing.”
