Writing the Body with Lex Orgera

Thursday, November 07, 2024 • 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM EST


Event Details

In this generative poetry workshop, we will explore and produce writing grounded in the body and its unique memory. We’ll read and discuss a variety of contemporary examples, finding new ways into our own writing through mindful remembering and prompts inspired by the readings that will also incorporate visual art, sensory objects, and language games.

Lex Orgera writes poetry, hybrid nonfiction, and a newsletter called Yard Dragon exploring the intersections of nature, culture, and spirit. Orgera’s books include How Like Foreign Objects and Dust Jacket, and a memoir-in-fragments, Head Case: My Father, Alzheimer’s & Other Brainstorms. A new book of poems, Agatha, about body autonomy, is forthcoming from Jackleg Press. Orgera has taught high school and college writing, many community-based workshops, and is the inaugural Executive Director of Greensboro Bound Literary Festival.
