Winter Tangerine Summer Intensive Workshops 

Winter Tangerine is holding two sessions of a four-day intensive writing workshop at Poets House. We design our workshops for writers who want to challenge themselves and their work. We won't teach you how to write: instead, we want to collectively build new lenses meant to create dynamic readings and writings. As a student, you'll engage in daily writing activities, lesson-based writing prompts, & group discussions led by a team of enthusiastic advisors.

Making a Point in Two Lines: The Challenge of the Modern Ghazal

The Ghazal is a form whose aesthetics allow it to make a grand gesture in merely two lines. How does a successful Ghazal string these “independent, epigrammatic” couplets without sounding archaic or sentimental? In this workshop, we’ll take a brief look at the rich tradition of the Ghazal in Urdu, and explore some well-crafted Ghazals by contemporary American poets. Workshop participants will engage in writing exercises and discussion on their way to writing their own Ghazal.

“Walking Together, Talking Together” with MC Hyland

“O friend, we had not seen thee at this time,
And yet a power is on me and a strong
Confusion, and I seem to plant thee there.
Far art thou wandered now in search of health,
And milder breezes—melancholy lot—
But thou art with us, with us in the past,
The present, with us in the times to come.”

—Wordsworth, The Prelude

“Ghost Walk” with Hossannah Asuncion

“Thousands of people pass that storefront every day, each one haunting the streets of his or her own New York, not one of them seeing the same thing.”
—Colson Whitehead, “City Limits”

What would you say to your ghosts? The ones that are deeper than nostalgia? The ones leaning against a New York that no longer exists; the way you are different than yesterday.

Ghost Walk explores, through text and image, the moments we recall and refeel stepping through this city’s transient memory.
