Emily Dickinson: Process and Brush Strokes, A Workshop about Language and Creativity led by Jay O'Callahan.
Emily Dickinson "played" with her craft. You'll hear a few Dickinson poems, and a four-minute story about Emily Dickinson. You'll look at her striking phrases, "brush strokes," simple phrases like "a flying attitude" or a "nervous star." You will play with her process. Your process will be enhanced!
