Intention & Discovery: Form as Portal; Form as Path

Marie Howe WEEK 11: August 19 to August 24 TUITION: $600 WORKSHOP: 9am-Noon DISCIPLINE: Poetry OPEN TO ALL ON-SITE HOUSING AVAILABLE

This workshop is primarily generative – although we will also discuss work as it is brought to the table. We will read a great many published poems and, inspired by them, use the perceived forms to create portals and pathways to new work. Each writer need only bring a desire to experiment, old work that she is willing to alter, and some published poems she loves.

As this workshop fills quickly with a long wait list, Marie has requested that students who have taken her workshop within the past five years (2013-2017) refrain from registering so that new students may have the opportunity to work with her. Thank you.


Marie Howe is the author of four volumes of poetry: Magdalene: Poems (W.W. Norton, 2017); The Kingdom of Ordinary Time (W.W. Norton, 2009); What the Living Do (1997); and The Good Thief (1988). She is also the co-editor of a book of essays, In the Company of My Solitude: American Writing from the AIDS Pandemic (1994). Her poems have appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Poetry, Agni, Ploughshares, Harvard Review, and The Partisan Review, among others.
