Poetry is a way to pay attention to language, to the world, to what it feels like to be alive.

In this workshop, students explore how to balance attention with craft, intuition and inspiration. Students will look at the building blocks of poems from individual words to lines, stanzas, fragments and paragraphs, and also investigate inspiration: what activity or inactivity can summon it, how to use it when it happens.

Manuscript Submission required
