Daisy Fried Poetry Revision Boot Camp: Summer Poetry September 17 to September 21, 2018 Number of Participants: 12 Price: $400 Format: 1 Week Asynchronous Workshop

Get ready, get set…You’ll either come into workshop with a poem draft you’re interested in but dissatisfied with, or, at the workshop’s beginning, you’ll generate a brand new first draft following a prompt designed to give you something substantial to work with. Each day, you’ll overhaul the poem in a different way according to a different kamikaze revision suggestion, working towards vision and possibility and collecting tools for future revisions. Along the way, we’ll discuss process and do some light reading as you work on your revisions, and you’ll be invited to comment, briefly, on other people’s results. The workshop leader will supply you with detailed commentary on all your drafts at the end of the workshop. This workshop is not about tidying, but about re-seeing, and revision as discovery.
