Stanley Kunitz once cautioned us against clichés of speech, but he went on to caution us against clichés of thought and feeling as well. What are clichés of thought and feeling? What are ours? How do we undermine and revise thought habits, feeling habits and composition habits, so that writing (and revision) can become a way of discovering the new? Come prepared to get a little lost. Come ready to generate a lot of writing. Come ready to destroy what you might have had in mind. Who knows what might come of it? This workshop is only open to students who have never worked with Marie before.
