02-08-2023 - Poetry as Spellcraft: A Writing Workshop with Jezmina Von Thiele
Poetry has a long history as oral tradition and story telling, and much of spell-writing borrows poetic conventions to draw from those many centuries of meaning and magic. In this luscious container held by Jezmina Von Thiele, we'll explore and practice poetic spell-writing threaded through with our own magical intentions.
Jezmina is both a professional poet and life-long witch — with this offering, they'll share their favorite exercises to summon and hone a poetic spell. Together, we'll weave our way through the history of spells as poetry, stopping along the way to answer writing prompts as we concoct our own witchy verses. By the end of the class, you'll have a draft of a spell, and an opportunity to work with your poem in guided ritual. You don't need to be a seasoned poet to take this class, but it's helpful if you already have your own established magical practice!
In preparation for the workshop, please gather the following items:
- Pen and paper or a journal
- Any ritual tools you may need to set your container (i.e. candles, a bowl of water and salt, cleansing herbs, etc.)
- Snacks and drinks for nourishment!
This live, online workshop will be recorded. A replay will be available for 30 days sent out to all registered participants.
