WRITING POEMS: VISION & REVISION – LIVE

Gail Mazur Poetry August 9 to August 13, 2021 TUITION COST: $550 CLASS SIZE: 12 SESSION: summer LEVEL: 1 week asynchronous workshop

Often the best, most surprising inspirations for revision comes from close readings of poems new to us. Together we’ll look at poems and write new poems. Every day! All of us! We’ll give ourselves and our writing a figurative shake or two, talk constructively and in new ways about each others’ works, and we’ll keep going.

LIVE TIME: 10am-12pm EST.
