LIVE via ZOOM: 3pm-5pm (Eastern Time)
Revision, for me, is part of the generative process. We keep writing until we feel that the poem is realized. And we may well end up where we thought we were going, or… someplace utterly, wonderfully, mindbogglingly different. We’ll look at different revision / generative techniques when we look at your poems during the week. This is a traditional workshop using some non-traditional (radical revision) techniques, as well as techniques you are used to—compression, expansion, and so forth. We will discover uncharted paths within your poems.
