Register for this Workshop

In this workshop we will generate work based on art. Expect to walk away with four new poems. I will respond to the first poems from each student and we will workshop the last two poems in class. Each day will consist of a mini lecture, in-class writing, and workshopping. Students will have the same and sufficient amount of workshop time for an encouraging critique.

Please submit 3 poems to by June 26 to present an idea of your writing level and style.

The Shared World is forthcoming (Northwestern University Press). Her work has appeared in numerous journals, textbooks, and anthologies, including Poetry, Best American Poetry (6x), American Journal: Fifty Poems for Our Times, and Angles of Ascent: A Norton Anthology of Contemporary African American Poetry, among others.
