Poetry Workshop: Pastoral Poetry + The Highwaymen

Poetry Workshop: Pastoral Poetry + The Highwaymen Online

Pastoral poetry is known for exploring the relationship between humans and nature. In this workshop, participants will look at examples of pastoral poems and spend time composing an individual work based on the artwork of The Highwaymen.

The workshop will be led by international slam poetry champion, Anthony McPherson. McPherson's work incorporates various art forms, as well as a myriad of character impressions, to address race, art, and his own biracial identity. He's appeared on Button Poetry, in HuffPost, and Upworthy, and has reached over ten million views since his first viral poem, "All Lives Matter: 1800's Edition."
