Register for this Workshop

In this workshop, we will be focusing intensively on contemporary poetic craft — workshopping participants’ existing poems, but also looking at how a widely diverse array of poets have responded to a given challenge — from sonics to lineation, from disjunction to revision. Students will receive readings geared toward each topic as well as generative daily exercises that will push you out of your comfort zone and into new practices and approaches. Prepare to stretch and strengthen some new poetic muscles!
