The Winter Poem with Thomas R. Smith

Thomas Smith

Thomas R. Smith is a well-known poet and editor who has published many collections of poetry, including Waking Before Dawn and The Foot of the Rainbow (Red Dragonfly Press). He is also the editor of Airmail:The Letters of Robert Bly and Tomas Transtromerr (a winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature). He teaches poetry at the Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis and lives in River Falls, Wisconsin.

For many, winter is the best season for writing, when the quiet of the external landscape pulls us toward an inwardness conducive to dreaming and re-visioning our lives. Winter's inward mood is perfectly suited to the reading and writing of poetry. In this part-workshop, part-retreat, we'll take advantage of the season to focus on both the outward and inner aspects of winter. Along the way we'll visit the work of several poets of our region who know and have written memorably of the northern winter, among them Freya Manfred, Robert Bly, Connie Wanek, and Tom Hennen. In exercises tailored to the season we will write our own poems of winter, touching on the fertile dream-work that nourishes us during the cold, dark time of the year.
