A workshop devoted to revision. My hope is that you’ll each bring four or five poems to class, poems you’ve been working on for a while but just can’t get into a satisfying shape. I hope too that over the week you’ll also bring into class revisions of poems we have critiqued.
Alan Shapiro has published thirteen books of poetry, most recently Against Translation, Life Pig and Reel to Reel, a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. His Night of the Republic, was a finalist for both the International Griffith Prize and the National Book Award.
