Det skal I lave

To be a poet is to create an oasis for those you love and those you’ll never meet. Some of history’s most celebrated poets have served as organizers, judicial overseers, scientists, theologians, philosophers, and healers. Poetry is an art of energy and attention focused by admiration. The times we live in complicate our ability to focus energy and attention. In this class, we make time for aesthetic exploration, community, and inspiration through poetic meditation and guided writing exercises. You'll get to share your own work if you would like to do so, and you'll also hear work from some of my favorite queer poets. We’ll discuss their various themes and influences. If you would like to do so, I will help you explore some of the basics of writing poetry and create your own poem.

I am a poet and community organizer from rural Oregon. I've been curating immersive public art experiences for the last ten years. I currently serve as the poet in residence for Portland Parks and Rec and am the founder and creative director of a non-profit queer artist collective called Future Prairie. I am interested in spiritual philosophies and their intersection with culture, media, and community placemaking. My approach is rooted in a reverence for nature and is inclusive of various schools of thought: Abrahamic faiths, modern mental health research, Shintoism, myths, physics, and more. As a White person, I tend to draw inspiration for this class from personal histories with Celtic and Norse paganism, although I am interested in all traditions and love to learn from my students and collaborators from many different backgrounds.

I had a really lovely time writing with Jo and another guest. We read poems and discussed them - there are no wrong answers and Jo made me feel comfortable sharing my thoughts. I've been to a few writing workshops, but Jo taught us a unique way of starting a poem that I had never tried before, so I am excited to use the same technique for future poems.

I had a great time at Jo's poetry writing class. The class started with Jo reading her favorite poems from queer writers and the discussions about them, and then Jo walked us through the journey of how to compose one step by step in a very engaging way, and boom I have a poem. As someone who have not written much poems as an adult, I felt like I rediscovered the joy of writing them from my childhood.

What a great experience! I used to love poetry as a kid, and then hadn't really gotten into it much as an adult. It was nice to dive into that part of my brain again. I also really enjoyed the poems that Joni read, and the way they led the exercises. Definitely recommend!

Jo hosted an impactful online experience, starting with some powerful poetry readings and then moving us into a set of writing exercises. Her overall session has a nice, natural flow to it - I'm really pleased with the outcome. Thank you for the excellent reading recommendations as well!
