This workshop offers tailor-made, dynamic critiques of your own writing of poetry or prose. There will be weekly assigned readings on a variety of themed uses of classical mythology and its reception, some from 20th century Mediterranean poets including Cavafy, Sefaris, Montale, as well as other British influences (Pound, T.S. Eliot), and more recently, Gluck. Each participant will relate their own favorite goddesses, gods, heroes, myths, sources, and authors. Assessing current primary sources and translations will lead to guided research for each workshop participant to individualize topics relevant to their own writing topic and genre. Learn to weave myth comfortably into one’s own writing, while simultaneously sharpening one’s ability to recognize allusions that speak to today’s world, leaving no stone unturned.
