Discovering Kintsugi: The “Golden Joinery” of Revision

Discovering Kintsugi: The “Golden Joinery” of Revision

a Denver Woman’s Press Club workshop, led by Kathryn Winograd

April 26th, 10:00 AM

When the favorite Chinese tea bowl of a fifteenth-century shogun broke, his craftsman “fixed” it with a lacquer mixed with gold. The result? A beautiful testament to the vessel’s broken history and its transformation into a more profound entity that honors that brokenness. Learn how the techniques of deliberate disruption and association can expand, alchemize, and deepen the “broken” in your writing.

To participate: bring in your own “broken” poetry and prose, an unrelated journal entry, a printout of facts and terms for an object/phenomenon in the natural world (for example, birds, wind, black holes, etc.), and a quote from your favorite philosopher. Plus paper and pen.

This special event will be presented by DWPC member Kathryn Winograd, the author of Air into Breath, winner of the Colorado Book Award in Poetry, and Phantom Canyon: Essays of Reclamation, recently published by Conundrum Press. Kathryn teaches poetry and creative nonfiction for Ashland University’s low residency MFA program and at Arapahoe Community College.

To attend the brunch, RSVP by April 23 to Bonnie McCune to reserve your spot: 303-394-3710 or $13 for brunch.
