    I'm trilled to be back with Awful Good Writers for a new workshop! Because language is constantly evolving, so too are its highest arts. ‘No Word for This,’ is a workshop for poets, designed to stimulate creativity by reconsidering the origins of speech, how different cultures create new words, the long tradition of words invented by poets, and the mysteries of how language is processed in the brain.

    Since 2017, I've been working with speech pathologists and clinicians to develop poetry classes for people with Aphasia and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). The results are compelling and call for a total reappraisal of this art form. It’s the most useful I have ever felt as an artist.

    This is the first time I'll incorporate these insights for a wider audience. I promise you will see your own work differently, and probably discover a few obstacles you didn’t know were in your way. Writers of all backgrounds and experience are welcome. Sufferers of Writer’s Block strongly encouraged.
