In this workshop, attendees will learn how to use tarot cards as inspiration to write their own poems. We will hear examples of how other poets have used tarot and other divination systems for poetic inspiration (Teofilo Folengo, Rachel Pollack, Juan Felipe Herrera, and others). We will explore different poetic techniques and forms to connect with tarot. We will also look at how the structures and symbolism within the tarot can lend themselves to poetry. Participants will be prompted to write their own tarot poems, and will leave this workshop with a reading list and prompt list. Familiarity with tarot is not necessary.
