Contemporary Zen Poetry Workshop,Tue 9/27,7pm SLT

This week the Short Poetry Workshop explores Contemporary Zen Poetry with guest host Ngagpa Writer. Contemporary Zen Poetry breaks away from the rigid structure of traditional Zen Poetry and has no set form or meter. Short and probably NOT so much to the point, contemporary Zen Poetry explores the inner consciousness of the poet.
