In The Poet’s Companion, Kim Addonizio and Dorianne Laux argue that images should “produce a bit of magic, a reality so real it is ‘like being alive twice.’” As poets, after mining our respective memories, how do we deepen the reader’s experience with the poem via the image? How does one draft a lasting image? This workshop seeks to focus the image at the poem’s center. To this end, participants will review poems with images that reverberate and re-imagine their own poems with images that idle. This is both a traditional and generative workshop. One in which participants will leave with revised poems as well as a handful of new drafts.
