Poetry West Workshop: Photo Poems Sans Photos with Martin McGovern.
This workshop will use the method that Martin McGovern “discovered” to analyze a number of poems and to write and share poems of our own—so bring in five significant photos and your imagination. We will also construct imaginary photos from which we can write new poems, “sans photos” – without the real photos. It will, I assure you, 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.
