What you'll do

There is more connection, but a lack of communication. There are more humans, but less human contact. We live in anonymous crowds. We live in a changing world, but it is hard to think out of the box. I invite you to chat about your city experiences, to think about it, to see it from new perspectives, and to write it down. This is for everybody, all. Yes, we'll be writing poetry, and flattering compliments. Isn't nice to say nice things to people we like? It's necessary. But don't worry, it's not that hard. Writing poetry is not about the poem, is about the writing. Forget the outcome, enjoy the experience. I will give you some advice and techniques to write poetry, and before you write the one, we'll practice with a few. Yes, we'll read and share our writing and thoughts, enjoing our coffe, wine or beer. We'll meet new people, that probably won't see anymore, but who knows. The experience is based on the Poetic Menu idea. It is a way to structure and give sense to writing. Instead of writing randomly, we'll choose some topics to write about. Ok, facts. After the introduction (Where are you from, What do you do and so on) we'll work ont he concept of the Poetic Menu, I will serve a Poetic Menu to each. Then, we'll have a short Poetry Writing Workshop. After that, you'll design your own Menu and offer it to others, improvising poetry and compliments on their choices.

Nicolás

I'm a poet. It isn't easy to believe, it's hard to be. But that's me. I belive poetry brings new meanings to life, things that didn't existe before, and that is what I try to do with my work, with this Experience, bringing up something new, a new activity for new thoughts, new ideas, new points of view, new experiences, new posibilities. I studied Fine Arts and Creative Writing at University. I was a street poet for three years (living from that, yes), I self-publish my own books, bags and t-shirts. I tought Creative painting in prison, Creative drawing for children, Creative writing and Self-publishing for adults. Now I teach Spanish, I write, and I paint watercolours. And I keep thinking, "Whats else can I do, tho bring something new?".
