Decomposition Compositions Workshop
Project by Beata Rikhter

$15-$50 | Register here

In this workshop, we will adapt the composting process to writing. We will begin by journaling, and through prompts and editing, reduce our writing to its elements. This reduced writing will be shared with our workshop neighbor to be responded to or expanded upon.


This process will be repeated several times, expanding and reducing, until we have bunches of poems that could never have happened without the interconnection–just like compost! The final poems will be printed on stickers and shared on the compost collection pick-up bags at Miami Beach Botanical Garden and beyond.

The workshop will be followed by an optional dip in the ocean and beach gathering.
