Revision & Generating – Discovering the New in the Old: A Poetry Workshop
The week will be spent focusing on revising work brought in for discussion as well as discovering how revision can serve the poem at hand as well as spawning new, unanticipated poems. So revision, yes. New work, yes. And, throughout the week, I’ll hand out iconic poems for us to look at as well as work by new writers. Open to those writers who are truly interested in the revision process and all that it can bring us.
