Lorca (1914)

Beginning with an overview of Federico García Lorca's life, writings, and drawings, this week-long workshop will examine the Spanish poet's influences (Buñuel, Dali, and Neruda) and those poets and artists he has influenced. Each day, you will write poems influenced, in turn, by the work of Lorca, his theory of cante jondo (deep music), and those he influenced, including modern Arab poets. Daily group workshopping of poems will take place in a supportive environment. Open to poets and visual artists of all levels.
