Why do we write poems? What are they for? How do they work?
In this advanced workshop, we will look at the many technical components that make up a poem. We will discuss strategies for editing, revising and making new work and study a poem’s effect on the reader. Our emphasis will be on work-in-progress, though we will do a number of exercises aimed at renewing and altering our approaches to bringing a poem into the world. We will read some contemporary (and not so contemporary) poems and frame the discussions of our own work as being part of the tradition of the art.
Class meets on Mondays: Feb 26, Mar 5, 12, 19, 26 and Apr 2
