Miguel de Cervantes once said: “All sorrows are less with bread”. Whether you’re omnivore/carnivore/herbivore/allergy-ridden/or a “normie” – the sentiMINT remains: food, to quote a wise woman, “is sustenance and nourishment of the body, mind, and soul. It is a means of connection within heritage and community. It’s aesthetically pleasing and, frankly, delicious.” If this resonates and you dAPPLE in writing poetry – this workshop is for you! Participants will learn a BRIEf history of “recipe poetry” and review a few examples before STIR Ftrying their own hand. Participants are asked to bring a few recipes that are palatable and POISSONally meaningful for inspiration during the writing exercise. EAT-ited versions of workshop output will be included in a collection to be published by shreeking violet press. Snacks hopefully will be PRODUCEd.
