Pretty Mouth Workshops are a series of activity based workshops that establish and stimulate the intellectual dexterities needed (comprehension, ideation, and public speaking) to write and perform poetry more effectively. All workshops are taught by Elijah Bean, a seasoned poet and storyteller holding a BA in Theater Performance from The University of Alabama (Tuscaloosa) and an MFA in Poetry from Columbia University (New York City).
The Generator - A poetry workshop designed to propagate the faculties needed to generate poetry more frequently. Using the communal power of Socratic discussion, we will unpack specific themes, models, and genres of poetry; then we will complete a guided writing prompt that is relevant to the aforementioned topic(s); concluding with a round table critique of each newly written piece. Minimal requirements: a willingness to write on command, read aloud, and give/receive candid critiques.
Tuition: $30 per workshop or $50 for both workshops (The Generator and Talk Pretty). Seating is limited, reserve your space today!
