FROM GLASS LYRE PRESS
E=Mc2Bodied Poetry Workshops are unique generative environments that invite the body and brain to collaborate more deliberately. Each workshop includes somatic practice, a packet of poems, ideas, and inspiration for class writing, and time for peer engagement and feedback. Revitalize your writing by increasing your range of motion in the imagination, voice, and on the page.
In One-Day, Week-End, and Six-Week Series Offerings, Dobreer weaves an intricate and inspiring web of thought to generate new work and provide opportunities for live reading. Her background in dance and choreography informs every prompt and you never have to leave your chair.
Opportunities for private mentoring available.
