How to Write a Poem How to Write a Poem August 14 to August 19, 2016 Tuition: $600 Workshop: 9AM-Noon Discipline: Poetry OPEN TO ALL On-site Housing NOT Available - Off-site Housing Options

THIS WORKSHOP IS FULL

This is a no level workshop. My favorite thing is a poem, I think you can enter or re enter the practice of writing poetry from any point, and often inexperienced poets are more adept in picking up new things & employing them than more experienced practitioners. Lately I’ve been thinking about John Milton, Emily Dickinson, R. Erica Doyle, CA Conrad and Karen Weiser. So I will bring in pieces of their work and talk about why I think it shakes and see if we can tear off a piece of it, or be altered by its process and make something new.
