Poetry, Food for the Soul
Poetry can nourish us in ways that nothing else can. In good times and bad times, we often make it part of our public rituals and our private meditations. It can be an utterance from deep within us or a little ditty passing pretty. In this camp, we will read and write all kinds of poetry on all kinds of themes. We will share favorite poems, written by us or by others, and, looking at poetry as a craft, we will discuss ways of making our meaning clear, beautiful, powerful, or whatever we most want it to be. I hope you can join us! Part of the joy of camps like this is that we can meet like-minded people.
Andrea Fisher Rowland is a teacher and writer living in Charlottesville. Her poems will soon appear in the journal Artemis, and she won the poetry competition sponsored last year by Writer House and the Jefferson-Madison Library with her poem “These Same Fields.” She teaches English at Renaissance School and received her Masters with a concentration in creative writing and her PhD in English from the University of Virginia. Poetry has been an integral part of her life, and she loves to talk to kindred spirits.
