MURIEL RUKEYSER (1913-1980)
Last week I attended the Powerhouse Discovery Centre to discuss several exciting ideas for poetry writing with young people - more on this later..
This week more poetry as I begin a journey with 18 primary school students on my poetry program VIVID: The River of Life.
On a personal note, I'm reading the stunning work of Muriel Rukeyser (1913-1980). She is an American Poet whose Collected Poems and I chanced upon in Berkelouws Books in Glebe and what a gift it is!
Trust in experience. And, in the rhythms, the deep rhythms of your experience.
