The Reverse Selfie workshop will tour our town’s landmarks and hallmarks through the perspective of a poet: with concentration, discipline, and (after wrestling the ego to the ground,) dogged revision.
Expanding our outlook through the medium of poetry — as borrowed from Einstein’s idea of 'combinatory play' (the act of opening one mental channel by dabbling in another).
Where will these pathways lead you?
intents & purposes
Join us as we reverse the perspective from self to city —
• create a portfolio of engaging poems.
• develop habits of curious and critical thinking.
• learn Tulsa’s history, mythologies, and imagined future in relation to your own personal history, mythologies, and imagined future.
