Photo Poems Sans Photos

Presented by Poetry West at Hooked on Books Downtown

This Poetry West workshop’s focus is: Photo Poems Sans Photos and is taught by Martin McGovern.

This workshop will use the method that Martin McGovern “discovered” to analyze a number of poems and to write and share poems. Participants are asked to bring in five significant photos and an imagination. The class will also construct imaginary photos in order to write new poems, “sans photos” (or without the real photos). It will be a “fun day at the office.”

Martin McGovern’s 2015 collection of poems, “Bad Fame” (Able Muse Press), was a Colorado Book Award Finalist. His poetry and reviews have appeared in “The New Republic,” “Denver Quarterly,” “Poetry,” and elsewhere. McGovern’s play, “Joseph K,” earned the 2009 Ovation Award for Best New Work from the Denver Post.
