LIVE via ZOOM: 12pm-2pm EST.
This workshop will focus on how we can manage our material through decisions regarding craft. We will look at how our strategies can lead us through our poems and how we can work to bring our poems to realization and, too, how our drafts can trigger new poems that may go in unexpected and exciting directions. Poets work will be seen three times during the week. Instructions for sharing work will be sent once the roster is determined. Handouts of poems pertinent to discussions will be provided.
